Transformed from a rundown, derelict building into a luxurious penthouse fit for celebrities, the Villa in the Sky by Abraham John Architects demonstrates just how much can be done to upgrade a structure.

The house is located in India, and sits on top of a hill overlooking the ocean. Moreover, all rooms face the ocean to make the most of this pristine location in the tropical paradise. Abraham John Architects wanted to ensure that the building was eco-friendly, so the team installed low-energy appliances. For the interior design, wood accents are used throughout, giving the house a luxurious look, but one that appears natural and not over-the-top.

For a house to escape to, the Villa in the Sky is close to perfection.
