This concrete cantilever house extends out over the pool, not just a tad, but 32 feet! That’s incredible. Dubbed Casa Cruzada and designed by Clavel Arquitectos, it a very unique house. Located in Murcia, Spain, the Crossed House has nothing to do with religion and everything to do with balance. The garden and pool level of the house has floor to ceiling glass doors – to encourage connection with nature. The cantilevered upstairs offers vital shade – it can get hot in this part of Spain. Modernist (extremely modernist) in design, it’s also incredibly practical. We still can’t get over the overhang. And we love the whole effect. From the second floor sweeping views, to the poolside shade – it’s an incredible vision.
