As much as I love nature to be as untouched as possible to preserve its raw beauty, the House on the Mountainside shows how the contrast between manmade objects against a rugged backdrop can also be a spectacular sight to behold. Considering that this particular residence takes on a very sharp, stark and minimalist aesthetic makes it pop even more amid its craggy surroundings.

Designed by ran Silvestre Arquitectos, the House on the Mountainside does actually embrace nature more than we would have first believed. It is actually made out of the same material that littered the foundation on which it sits: white limestone.

An airy and open concept, the House on the Mountainside has a stunning view of the Valley of Ayora. Stats for Crag-Encased Residences Trending: Older & Warm
