Carlos Alejandro Ciravegna – Five houses suspended over a rocky hill

Today we have 5 houses designed by Carlos Alejandro Ciravegna, each house splits in two wings, suspended mid-air, in order to look for the best light and views from the hill in which leans.

All five residences are accessed separately via a private staircase that leads up over the rocky terrain to an entrance between the two wings.
