A dream house
I don't know if its the architectural design of the house or the fact that its located at the top of a rocky mountain with a view of a perfect blue sea; this Californian Casa Finisterra is my dream house. Designed by Steven Harris Architects, the house reveals the struggle between blending in the rocky mountain by using stone cladding in certain areas, and defying the mountain by using contrasting smooth surfaces painted white in other areas. Huge areas of glazing in the living rooms allow maximum natural daylight in and views of the extraordinary landscape surrounding the house.
