Flimsiness is the last word one would think of when looking at this home. Although it hangs at a cliff’s edge above a leafy North Shore suburb, this home is all about strength and solidity. From the sea below, it looks like a series of stacked geometries and dark contours. A closer look reveals a material palette of blackened precast concrete, waxed steel, and glazing, often punctuated by vertical fins — also in precast — cantilevered nooks, and a lot of comfort. Cliffhanger by Studio John Irving Architects is presented in association with Peter Fell.
