Fearon Hay Architects has designed a stunning house that looks more like a showcase piece than an actual livable space. Yet since it is surrounded by nature, the residents won't feel so exposed in the glass box that is meant to shelter them. Utterly luxurious and contemporary, it boasts floor-to-ceiling windows that happen to make up all of the walls as well.

Located in Auckland, New Zealand, Fearon Hay Architects aptly dubbed the design Cliff House. Maximizing the views, the two-storey glass castle contrasts with the natural surroundings in a stark way. The interior is predominantly made up of concrete and other stone details. One of the best features of the house is the bathroom where a free-standing shower is located next to the bath in a very unassuming way.
