This spectacularly daring cliff-edge luxury residence was constructed with a virtuous construct to create a house that appears to be floating on air with the ability to walk out onto the water below. More an abstract sculpture than a standard home, the evocative structure invites the sun and sea into its quiet three-dimensional spaces of solitude and splendour.
Straight lines and stark white faces reveal the modernity with which it was conceived on an abrupt plot of land overlooking the sea below. The monolithic, stone-anchored structure generates a horizontal platform from the accessing level where the house itself is located on the rugged landscape. The materials, walls, pavements, and the gravel on the roof, all maintain the same colour, respecting the traditional architecture of the area, emphasizing it and simultaneously underlining the unity of the house.
The residence provides a stunningly beautiful Cliffside visual panorama high over the sea, providing a truly mesmerizing peerless living experience. The overwhelming solace and sanctuary of the sea, sun and sky are in perfect harmony with the rugged Cliffside perch creating an oasis of breathtaking architectural and natural beauty in this one perfect place.
