The Benahavis House by Fran Silvestre Arquitectos is situated on a grassy steep slope in southern Spain’s Costa del Sol. Rather than shying away from the uneven landscape, Fran Silvestre Arquitectos took on the challenge of making the jagged topography a key element in the house’s striking visual aesthetic.

The house’s cantilevered structure is a definitive aspect of the architecture’s eye-catching design. The leveled out living quarters are propped by a voluminous perpendicular base, offering a heightened view of the outside. The supportive structure acts as an access point to the lower basement, which sees a sleek swimming pool that seamlessly connects to the garden. On the same level are a large garage, storage area and a set of locker rooms. As a final touch, the upper living areas come with bedrooms that face south-west and big open windows that look out to the surrounding lush terrace.

Scroll through the photos above for a look at the Benahavis House.
