In designing this house in Lerin, Spain, Azpilicueta Arquitectura y Paisaje — a local architecture studio — was confined by the layout of the property on which the home now sits. Not only is the property angled thanks to a dogleg in the alleyway that passes behind it, but the topology is also steeply sloped, meaning that the home is canted along two axes. That goes a long way in explaining the interestingly abstract shape of the home.

From the outside, the unique shape of Azpilicueta Arquitectura y Paisaje's home design is very clear. However, that shape also impacts the feel of the home's interior. It has many rooms, hallways, and staircases with surprising corners and twists, which serve to make the home's interior exciting and fascinating.
