This impressive house from Steven Harris Architects is precisely the kind of dwelling that makes us pose the rhetorical question: “Why are we living in a crowded dirty city?” We would consider operating out of a tent on this plot of land, so the seemingly labyrinthine casa pushes things onto ethereal turf. Romantic notions of finally finishing that novel from a writing desk overlooking the pounding surf are getting embarrassing. The house mixes relaxation and modern very well, not to mention how gracefully it sits into the hillside above the water. The Casa Finisterra meets the highest demands in modern architecture, comfort, interior (design by Rees Roberts), and environment. Landscape architect: Margie Ruddick, Photography by Scott Frances.
