Browsing: Cliff House

Cliff houses are superb architectural marvels that suspend from the mountain, inducing vertigo. The multi-story cliff house floats in mid-air with all levels tucked against the rocky cliff. Sidewalls are finished in concrete blending perfectly with the rocky background, while the front facade is all glass to offer breath-taking views of the valley and river/sea below.

Raw concrete, glass and steel beams are the main construction materials of these cliff homes. These houses appear merged out of the ground. The partly-submerged roof helps the architecture to seamlessly blend with the environment, while the concrete and cantilevered composition ensure safety.

To experience the thrill in urban luxuries and nature is one of the main reasons behind building cliff homes.
