This Dangling Mediterranean Cliff House Has Gravity-Defying Style
You can’t beat the view.
Built as an organic extension of the rocky coast above Alicante, Spain, the House on the Cliff dangles precipitously. Its reinforced concrete slabs covered in smooth, white stucco are cleverly cantilevered over the Mediterranean.
The theme continues throughout the interior. Even the bathroom sink is cantilevered, with clean lines abound. And why bother hanging artwork when the vista just outside your window is naturally just as beautiful?
To maintain a clean profile throughout, even the kitchen appliances hide away nicely and neatly. No detail has been overlooked in this overlooking house.
Of course, a few non-white accents are allowable, as long as they’re kept to a minimum. But to balance it out, you should probably just wear all-white all the time.
Built on a natural ledge, the pool serenely overlooks the sea. Although the home itself is designed around a single-floor plan, its surrounding cliffs and wide vistas create a powerful sense of depth.
As much as it shines in the day, nothing beats the views at night. So much so, that you might almost forget how much this otherwise relaxing refuge is dangling over its mountainous surroundings.
