A Collection Of Modern Homes Are Built Into These Weathered Granite Cliffs

January 13, 2022

Rising from their surroundings as linear geometric forms, these homes rest on weathered granitic cliffs.

London based architecture and design practice Studio RHE has completed a collection of four houses that are situated on the island of Félicité in the Seychelles.

Rising from their surroundings as linear geometric forms, the homes rest on weathered granitic outcrops that are eye-catching elements of the local landscape.

The houses are clad in black granite to complement the surrounding rock forms and are designed in such a way that they capture the wind, using a ‘venturi’ effect to provide natural cooling.
