The Mediterranean Pearl by Spainville is Impressively Imposing

The Mediterranean Pearl is an apt name for the home that has been built off the side of a cliff in Morro de Toix, Alicante, Spain. It strikes an impressive and imposing facade, as though it were a modern day fortress. It does boasts a brutalist style. Yet that quality is offset by the pristine white walls and dazzling landscape it is surrounded by.

Designed by architecture firm Spainville, The Mediterranean Pearl has a panoramic view of the Bay of Altea and the Mediterranean sea, hence its name. Yet the structure is a sight to behold itself. Although full of straight and formal lines, The Mediterranean Pearl is open and airy, which complements its surroundings perfectly. It is comprised of three floors.
