10 Inspired Cantilever Homes

Categories Inspired Architecture

This is a guest post from Antonina of OpenBuildings & sister site www.clippings.com! Below you will see thematic selections of inspirational architecture & design, which might help you start your very own design project and get matched with design professionals.

Cantilevers are a clever way around restricted footprints and building on steep terrains. They also come in extremely handy whenever a good panorama needs to be captured. The resulting buildings are both visually and spatially exciting – almost surreal structures of excitingly frail equilibrium.
