Spectacular Residence on a Cliff Edge Inspired by a Picasso Painting

durbach5 Spectacular Residence on a Cliff Edge Inspired by a Picasso Painting

This unbelievable looking residence seems sprung out of a science-fiction movie. Rising on the edge of a cliff measuring no less than seventy meters, House Holman has a spectacular architecture. The project comes from Durbach Block Architects and is located in Dover Heights, a coastal, eastern suburb of Sydney. Featuring unexpected angles of sight given by the elastic geometries of the construction, the exterior design is highly modern and couldn’t be more intriguing. According to the designers, the project was inspired by a famous art work belonging to Picasso. The artist created “The Bathers” after 1918, while spending most of his summers by the sea. The sinuous shapes in the painting seem to be present within this particular house design as well. The complex fluid spaces make for some incredible interiors which take full advantage of the sun rays and sea views. Simply breathtaking!
