The House in Tenerife- Simple Stunning Architecture o1

This is what u get into the cliffs nearly 1000 ft. above a black sand beach at Tenerife, Canary Island, west coast of Africa, descending the concrete staircase entrance:
the blending of a minimalist interior against a natural surrounding backdrop of blue sky & sea.
The double-storey living is simply clean with only 2 furnitures, le Corbuiser’s chaise and Mies Van der Rohe’s Barcelona chair backing a white two-storey height book-shelves that meets a small fire space wall.
Situated at the shorter end of a L-shape layout, like all the bedrooms & bathrooms, it faces an open deck that meets a pool which spills into the nature, separated only by an almost invisible glass panels that sat on the boundry between the meeting point of the concreted interior space & the timber decking itself.

Each room has its own bath, the master bedroom enjoys an open bath in a concrete tub sitting at the foot of the timber platform bed.
Unpretencious use of timber, glass & concrete, The House in Tenerife is an extraordinary architecture of true form & function.
Below, is the timber deck that integrate the architecture into the nature.
