If you ever wandered around the Sky Tower’s observation deck and thought to yourself “aw yeah I’d chuck a bed on this and spend the rest of my life here” then we just found the home for you. A new concept home designed for a couple in California is turning heads, and as we’d call it: a death defying cabin.
The home imagined by Iranian born designer Milad Eshtiyaghi certainly is a statement piece. Designed for a location in Mendocino California, this house is held over a sheer drop and a lake by two sets of cabling and a large monolithic pillar acting as the anchor.
The interior is spacious and cozy, giving everyday living a liberating feeling. A play area built from glass under the house takes full advantage of the unique location. Port holes in the floor of the interior living space allow you to keep an eye on this lower section, and the ground far below it.
“Since this house was designed for a client of two people (a couple), we designed a bedroom in the south to provide the sleeping space, family living room and work studio.” They said in the architects statement. “To separate spaces and fully see the south view. We have placed the living room, kitchen and dining area in the northern part, which overlooks the east and west views.”
“We designed the house form in a sloping way due to the climate of the region. We used a mast for the design of this project and secured the house with two categories of cable. That high cables bear the weight of gravity and the lower cables withstand lateral and upward wind forces.”
The office spaces spotted around the home give incredible views, and the entryway to the home through the pillars are a spectacle in their own right. Intimidating guests has never been so easy.
“We designed the mast of the project as someone who has been bended by opposition and is pulling a rope and the reason for bending the bridge mast to the opposite side is both aesthetics and increase stability due to gravity.”
Due to gravity, I’m personally opting out of this one. But that won’t stop me from admiring this death defying cabin from a distance.
