Suspended Building Covent Garden London

Some architecture projects challenge the logic of gravity and balance and are built well away from the ground. Check 7 installations suspended by the world that will make you curious enough at least:

House Tanglewood – West Stockbridge, Estados Unidos

Designed in 2009 by Warren R. Schwartz architect for his own wife, the house was built in steel, glass and aluminum. According to the architect himself, the project design is poetic and was designed after a visit to the Grand Canyon, where Schwartz noted that the setting of the sun from the top of a cliff  jutted out of the canyon.

Skylodge Adventure – Cuzco, Peru

The three suspended cabins built on the top of a sacred mountain in Peru are difficult to achieve. To sleep in one of them, you need to climb a wall of 122 meters or go through a long and challenging track.

Though they look small, each capsule has 4 single beds, enough space for food and bathroom. The structure consists of aerospace aluminum and weatherproof polycarbonate materials.

Cliff House – Victoria, Australia

Designed as a natural extension of the landscape, the Cliff House was built from prefabricated modular structures. With a breathtaking view, the house hanging on a cliff has 4 floors, connected by an elevator.

Nykredit’s office – Denmark

The headquarters of the Nykredit Danish bank would be like any other, if without its suspending meeting room. In the shape of transparent cube, just like the rest of the building, the whole of the room is made of glass and steel, ensuring support and aesthetic lightness of environment.

Tree Hotel – Harads, Sweden

The image does not seem real, but anyone can stay in the Tree Hotel. Inspired by the film The Tree Lover (Lover of trees), the 7 hotel facilities are suspended 6 meters high above the ground and have an incredible view of the Lule River.

The idea is a hotel where they could relax and engage with nature causing the least possible environmental impact. The products supplied by Tree Hotel are biodegradable, such as shampoos and soaps.

Balancing Barn – Suffolk, England

The suspended cottage Barn form was designed by the British office Mole Architects. The house has 30 meters long and half of this structure hangs on the side of a slope. Counterbalancing the Balancing Barn is guaranteed by a large concrete structure fixed to the ground, and the metal outer coating reflects the landscape and camouflages the house surrounded by nature.

The Hanging Houses – Pont-en-Royans,
France

The small French town of Pont-en-Royans attracts thousands of tourists, especially in summer thanks to their homes hanging on the river La Bourne. The buildings defy the laws of gravity and remain firm for decades.
