Stunning concept home built into cliff

There is something about the edge of a cliff that is both beautiful and terrifying at the same time. Standing over the edge looking down gives you chills in both a good and bad way. Architects from Greece have come up with a concept home that is actually built into a cliff edge and gives stunning views out over the ocean.

The home is basically a box of concrete that is submerged into the Cliffside. A huge swimming pool is the roof and the skylight as this has been designed with a glass bottom. The Open Platform for Architecture is behind the concept and they would like to build the home on the cliffs overlooking the Aegean Sea. The whole front of the house has been designed with a glass wall to make the most of the stunning views.

When swimming in the pool, which is set at road level, you can dive down and see inside this stunning house. When inside the house you can look up at those swimming in the pool and the rooms in the home are filled with the caustic reflections coming from the water in the pool and make it magical. You can imagine lying in bed at night and looking up at the night sky with the stars twinkling as you look at them through the water.

At the side of the swimming pool are the steps that take you down into the house with the huge plate glass window offering beautiful views for the owners to make the most of the sunset or sunrise, based on the position of the home. The only thing that is missing from the concept is a place to keep your prized sports car out of the sun.
