Clifftop house looks out over Pacific Ocean


 San Francisco company Fougeron Architecture has designed a house that runs down the side of a cliff and projects over the edge.

Fall House is perched 76 metres above the Pacific Ocean in California’s mountainous Big Sur region, and Fougeron Architecture had to design a building to withstand the elements because of its exposed location.

“Our design strategy embeds the building within the land, creating a structure inseparable from its context,” said architect Anne Fougeron. “The site offers dramatic views, yet it demands a form more complex than a giant picture window.”
