Holman House, Australia

Sited on the edge of a 70-metre high cliff, Holman House sure makes a mockery of the “sea view” rooms you’ll often pay a premium for at coastal hotels. Designed by Durbach Block Jaggers, “it contains a complex series of fluid living spaces set within a meandering perimeter that arcs, folds and stretches in response to sun, landscape and views.” Spaces splay out over the cliff’s edge allowing wonderful views up and down the coast while the lower floor forms a base build from rough stone walls like an extension of the cliffs below.
