NADA’s ‘WTBA House’ Is A Cantilevered Cliff-Side Abode In Isolated Ecuador

Aug 10, 2020

Category: Living

Cantilevered homes have become the talk of the architectural town in 2020, thanks, in large part, to their otherworldly designs, futuristic motivations, and unique flavors. The latest cliff-conscious project to capture our interest is NADA Studio’s ‘WTBA House’ — a contemporary, single-story residence located outside the village of Papallacta, Ecuador.

The harmonious, concrete-clad dwelling has been augmented with a healthy mixture of wood, glass, and greenery, providing a stark contrast to its surroundings. Established just above an active, flowing waterway within Ecuador’s northern mountain region, WTBA House has found a way to articulate isolation, sociability, and intimacy, without pandering toward any specific trait too heavily. Instead, the dwelling offers its denizens a formulaic structure — one where terraces, bedrooms, kitchens, exercise areas, and a notable, length-running infinity pool, are placed at a strategic distance from one another in an effort to promote individuality. The master suite, found at the space’s cantilevered end, takes on many a modern design trait, including a spacious walk-in closet, bathroom, and large, overbearing windows, providing panoramic views of the waters below. Head to NADA’s website for a closer look at the project.
