The Maralah Cliff House is an isolated cabin, cantilevered over the edge of a spectacular mountain range in Calgary. Influenced by the likes of John Lautner and Frank Lloyd Wright, the dramatic home sinks into the terrain, with the fully glazed master bedroom undoubtedly the showpiece of the property.
With a fantastic view over the river below, the small cabin is the perfect retreat for a weekend getaway. Built out of raw materials, including concrete, glass and stylish black steel, the house comes with just one bedroom. The cliff edge makes up the exterior walls of the property, which makes for an especially exciting feature in the kitchen and living space.
There’s a small amount of storage space in the property, hidden discreetly away beneath the breakfast bar, which doubles as the home’s dining table. A snug reading area opposite the kitchen leads down to the incredible master bedroom, which truly feels as though it’s suspended in thin air. Externally, a sloping roof has been planted to blend completely with the environment, and shield the property from view of anyone out for a hike in the dramatic surroundings.
