The green-roofed H2 Cape House by architect Vincent Coste looks like an ideal place to relax and soak up the Mediterranean sun. The sprawling residence blends into the unique seaside setting of Corsica without disturbing the existing vegetation or nearby granite rocks.

Merging the interior and exterior into a single, flowing space, the house offers a variety of ambiances. Its expansive single-story design makes way for several outdoor areas, including a central terrace, two swimming pools and access to a private beach and port for boats.

The extensive use of glass maximizes views of the surroundings, while red cedar siding adds warmth to the entire building. A large boulder seems to support one of the many cantilevering surfaces and overhangs of the building, contrasting the skinny facade.
