    Default Cliff House in Nova Scotia

    Cliff House by MacKay-Lyons Sweetapple Architects is perched over a rocky outcrop

    This boxy wooden house by Canadian studio MacKay-Lyons Sweetapple Architects extends over the edge of a rocky outcrop on the Atlantic coastline of Nova Scotia.
    Only a small section of the house makes contact with the ground, as most of its body projects over the edge of the cliff towards the waterfront, supported underneath by a criss-crossing arrangement of steel I-beams.
    MacKay-Lyons Sweetapple Architects designed Cliff House as a weekend getaway. It is intended to "heighten the experience of dwelling in landscape" by introducing a feeling of vertigo to its residents.

    Ahh, funny and daring placement, but boring on the inside. Not sure my vertigo would let me live there.

    Just because you're offended doesn't mean you're right.

    My thoughts exactly. A stupid, awkward little box scarring that beautiful pastel landscape. It looks like garbage.
