This house, referred to as the Takenoyama House 3 in Nagoya, Japan, is an engineering marvel. Look at how this house seemingly suspends on the side of a cliff. As you’ll see below, the base of the home is bolted/built into a steep incline. The driveway is a bridge to the house.

Let’s a take tour of this cliff house
It’s not just the fact it’s built into a cliff that’s so cool but for minimalist design lovers, this house will really strike a nerve. Calling this design minimalist is an understatement. It’s as sparse as a house can get. Check it out.
It was very difficult to come up with a plan to take advantage of this location after resolving landslide structures, their laws and possible construction methods.
The design of the third floor was designed so as not to make the scenery as fragmentable as possible to take advantage of this location. Therefore, the top floor was decided to be made of wooden.
The view from the room, cut by pillars and beams, creates an incredible space in the room. The seasonally changing views are an irreplaceable treasure of this house.
