IT brings a whole new meaning to the concept of living life on the edge.
Perched above the Med, Casa del Acantilado (The Cliff House) is the latest project from weird and wacky Madrid architects GilBartolome.
Something of a challenge, it was created by architects Pablo Gil and Jaime Bartolome on a 42-degree slope on the Granada coastline.
Commissioned by a young couple from Madrid, every single window of the home, near Salobrena, boasts stunning views of the sea.
The state-of-the-art design split over two floors features a ‘dragon-scale’ inspired curved roof, floor-to-ceiling windows and an infinity pool.
Its position dug into the hillside helps the inside stay cool in the summer months and warmer in winter.
“The project combined joyful living, innovative construction techniques, the return of craftsmanship and the cave as an environmental strategy,” said Bartolome.
