This brilliant cliffside home isn’t for those afraid of heights

It’s the kind of property you’d imagine a real-life Tony Stark would live in – cliffside mansion by day, superhero hideout by night.

Alex Hogrefe of Design Distill sketches illustrations of architects’ design plans for a living. Today we look at one of his own concepts: a cliffside retreat of acrophobia-inducing proportions.

The structure looks futuristic and minimalist, consisting of unpretentious sharp-edged exteriors, large bare walls, and wide windows offering ocean views and letting plenty of natural light in.

We agree with J.D. Digiovanni’s description of it as a “spaceship that got stuck in a rock formation,” and we love the contrast of the glass with the surrounding rocks.

Can you imagine the kind of cocktail parties you can have on those balconies?
