Ultramodern by design, this fantastic cliff-side residence in Thailand thrusts its occupants into the natural surroundings – forests on two sides, chiseled stone on the third and a sensational ocean view on the fourth.

A light, white, contemporary cliff-side cousin to FLW’s falling water, this structure by Original Vision (images by Marc Gerritsen) is composed of a series of linear levels that zig-zig horizontally across the landscape.

On approach, floor-to-ceiling and side-to-side panel doors can be opened to make the ground-floor living room feel like a covered outdoor patio.

The private core residence is lifted off the ground like a bridge, creating a clear view out across the infinity pool, between the trees and to the water beyond.
