Suspended House

Best Project of Private Residence

About the project
The location of the land of this project was the edge of the cliff, so in designing this house, we decided to separate the house from the land of the project so that the house is suspended in the air. We allow people in house experience different sensations: the feeling of fear and excitement in the outdoor space and the feeling of calm and coziness in the indoor space.
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. The upper cables bear the weight of gravity, and the lower cables withstand lateral and upward wind forces.
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 thanks to gravity.
