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

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.
