The Holman House sits high on top a 70-meter high cliff, curving to hug the edge and teeter on the boundary of the horizon. The building plans from is derived from Picasso’s painting The Bather; ” It contains a complex series of fluid living spaces set within a meandering perimeter that arcs, folds and stretches in response to sun, landscape and views.” The lower floor of the building is built out of a rough stone material that mimics the landscape, creating the allusion that the house is an extension of the cliff side. With cantilevered living spaces the house has some breath-taking views that create a dramatic effect while walking through the different spaces.
