Iran-based architect, Milad Eshtiyaghi, designs California's 'Suspended House.' With subdued minimal furnishings, the house is physically suspended over the cliffs of Mendocino. While it may seem precarious, five high-tensile support cables and a large foundation mast are used to ensure that the structure holds tightly in place.
The reinterpreted A-frame cabin is mostly solidly grounded, except for the hanging living area that overlooks the Pacific. Gravity gently tugs the cabin towards the structural mast to keep it upright. A cozy interior in the land-locked portion of the cabin contrasts the sharp edges of the Suspended House's hovering exterior. However, this guesthouse is not for the faint of heart as the suspended living area features glass floors and furniture.
