Three evocatively edgy houses push the notion of indoor/outdoor living to the extreme.
1. Firm: GilBartolomé Architecture.
Location: Granada, Spain.
Standout: Projecting from a cliff, an undulating roof surfaced in hand-fabricated zinc scales is pierced with oculi that overlook the Mediterranean Sea.
2. Firm: HuertaBizarra.
Location: Murcia, Spain.
Standout: Resembling the legs of a caterpillar, 18 coated steel stilts lift a boxy residence—with cantilevers galore—in pine and lime methacrylate.
3. Firm: Studio MK27.
Location: Guarujá, Brazil.
Standout: A pair of chaise longues perched on pine decking amidst a green roof reflect this retreat’s location within a dense forest.
