You could say that this striking seafront house designed by was made with the stunning scenery in mind here in Stoliv, Montenegro. The seaside house was outfitted with curved walls to embrace the landscape, welcoming views of the Adriatic Sea and mountains in the background. The signature arched stone “fins” and glass facades are inspired by this natural waterfront location and the town’s nautical roots. But this small fishing village is an unlikely host for such a modern, innovative house plan, so it really stands out among its more traditional counterparts. Check it out.
The slope house sits on a steep terrain, rolling down to the sea, with mountains rising up in front of and behind it, lending a great sense of privacy and the feeling of being “wrapped” in lush, leafy nature.
Apart from its geographical setting, the home’s design itself also allows for maximum privacy. The stone walls protrude from the main facade, shielding it from neighbors without compromising the view.
Glass panels blur the boundary between indoors and out, so whether you’re taking in the scenery from one of the patio loungers, or contemplating it from the comfort of home, the views are equally awesome.
Lower level glass and upper level terraces keep the home looking light and airy, and flooded with natural light.
The deep curve of the walls is like an architectural “come wither,” luring you in to see what’s beyond the bend.
The upper terraces overhang off the side, creating a walk-out into nature.
The overlapping walls create pockets, which are as appreciated for their architectural interest as for the privacy they offer.
The ground level patio is lined in glass, so as not to obstruct these pristine panoramas.
Just off the patio, a pool lets you do some laps while overlooking the bay – literally. The infinite edge makes you feel like you’re spilling into the sea.
Across the bay, the shimmering lights are magical by night.
