Cliff House

Perched 600 meters above sea level in Japan's Omine mountain range, the Cliff House by architect Masato Sekiya redefines weekend retreats. Designed as a holiday villa for a fishing enthusiast couple, the house cantilevers six meters over a steep slope, blending harmoniously with the surrounding environment. Facing challenges of limited space, Sekiya's solution involved sinking the structure into the ground and extending it over the Ten River. The innovative design, anchored by a reinforced concrete frame, achieves a 6-meter cantilever with a balanced structure. The interior, partitioned for optimal natural light, seamlessly connects to the lush forest and river views. This concrete masterpiece is a harmonious blend of architectural ingenuity and natural splendor.

The blade is exposed only 0.0013 inches - roughly a third of the thickness of a human hair. That is extremely difficult to manufacture, luckily, the team at Henson have been building parts for aerospace projects like satellite...
