Cantilever Houses

January 30, 2011 § 3 Comments

It’s no secret that I love cantilever houses.

Interestingly enough, this one is kind of like where I’m living now (long and thin) except off the ground.

I like that.

I’d put an office on the very end so I can sit and work and look over everything. Oh, and mine would be on the edge of a cliff over sharp rocks and ocean. None of this gentle slope nonsense; if you’re going to cantilever it has to be over certain death for maximum dramatic effect.

Or at least really high. With a balcony. Railing optional.

In order:

  • Whoa. I’ve never heard of a cantilever house and now I totally want to go play in one.

    • Brennan says:

      They are definitely underutilized in architecture. Mostly because you need to have a sloped chunk of land for any real distance sticking out. It’s all about the counter balance, usually stick into the ground itself.

      Flat lots in the middle of the city? Not so much…

      It can be done, don’t get me wrong. But it’s incredibly expensive and usually takes usable living space from the volume of a normal house.
