Spanish architecture studio Fran Silvestre designed a monolithic white home which appears to be floating over a steep clifftop overlooking the Mediterranean.
The one-level structure was secured on reinforced concrete slabs, minimising earthwork and allowing the building to respect the severely sloping topography. As a result, from certain angles the horizontal terrace fronting the home appears to be floating in mid-air. Finished in smooth white lime stucco, the appropriately-named “House on the Cliff” reflects the traditional building style and materials of the area. “We like the virtue of architecture which makes possible constructing a house on air, walking on water…” explain the architects, adding that the house is located in “an abrupt plot of land overlooking the sea, where what is best is to do nothing. It invites [you] to stay.”
