This stunning 'upside down' house sits on top of a cliff with fantastic views towards the Western Isles. The house was designed to cantilever out over the cliff edge by incorporating steel ground beams anchored into the rockhead. The superstructure is predominately timber framed with engineered floor joists. Steel bracing was used to ensure sufficient lateral stability against high wind loads.
