This concrete holiday home pairs an unstable exterior with a contrasting interior that is more sophisticated in style.

This gravity-defying structure aims to push the boundaries of architecture by literally turning a design on its head. The home features an inverted pyramid shape, appearing to balance on a delicate point. Designed to be built on a mountainous slope in Matarrana, Spain, this standalone home provides a stark contrast to its natural surroundings. The house's interior is finished with chic leather furniture, concrete walls, and plenty of large windows, offering gorgeous natural light and incomparable views of the scenic, mountainside paradise.

The luxurious concrete holiday home was designed as one of the 15 iterations of French developer Christian Bourdais' 'Solo Houses' series. Described as a "unique secondary residence," this home offers users the ability to retreat from society, while maintaining the luxuries and comfort of a modern holiday home.
