Glass Constructed Cliff Residence in New Zealand

Oct 24, 2012

Category: Living

Offering some of the most incredible views of the Rangitoto island and the Hauraki Gulf near Auckland, New Zealand, the Cliff House is one of the most amazing homes we have ever seen.

The residence was designed by the team at Fearon Hay Architects, and as the name suggests resides on a cliff. The idea of the home was to offer the occupants panoramic views while still being able to shelter them from harsh weather conditions. Although there is a bit of steel used, it’s mostly glass from the floors to the ceilings, and opens up completely to the surrounding elements including the swimming pool out back.
