the modernist dwelling boasts floor-to-wall windows throughout that offer unobstructed views of the surrounding area. large openings leading to a terracotta terrace blur the boundaries between interior and exterior while a selection of natural materials allows the residence to blend in further. the six-meter cantilever hangs over the pool and carries a rock that embodies what the architects describe as an emotion of liberation.
