German art expert Matthias Arndt designed the Triangle Cliff House as a concept project, giving shape to his imagined vision of a small mountain home atop a misty cliff. The unique structure would be the perfect vacation retreat for anyone who longs to lounge in luxury while gazing out at nature’s beauty. The small home’s steeply pitched roof would make it perfect for snowy mountain climes, but it’s that sprawling cliffside view that really captures the eye—and the heart.
The most important thing to know about the Triangle Cliff House design is that it wasn’t created for a client. Arndt’s firm Lichtect runs a bi-monthly design challenge, and this concept is Arndt’s personal response to the prompt requiring a home design for a fictional cliff. The artist went for the gusto with a structure that straddles the cliff’s edge, creating an amazing view from the lower level with floor-to-ceiling windows that gape out over a gorgeous mountain lake nestled in the valley below.
With windows on three sides, the Triangle Cliff House would offer inhabitants a wide selection of vistas. So, if one tired of looking down into the ravine, a view of the greenery along the ridgeline would be waiting through an adjacent window. It is hard to imagine a scenario in which the cliff face would become unappealing, though, especially with the addition of a thin balcony along the cliff’s edge, protected by a waist-high glass wall.
The renderings only show off the exterior design of the building, leaving the interior layout and fittings to the imagination. The structure appears to be designed as a two- or three-story dwelling with a rather open floor plan. The lower level contains at minimum a sitting area and a kitchen, with an open staircase cutting through the space and leading to the upper floor.
