Suspended over the Mediterranean, the House On The Cliff uses smart design to create a seaside retreat on the Spanish coast of Calpe, Alicante. Reinforced concrete slabs anchor the structure to the rockface, expanding the home over the ledge and allowing for a single-story floor plan. Minimal groundwork was done in order to respect the landscape, while creating the illusion the home was simply dropped on the rocky coast. A clean white palette was used throughout the interior in order to highlight the incredible 360-degree views of the surrounding sea. Since no waterfront retreat is complete without a pool, one was built on a naturally flat surface on the lower level property.
