Infinity House by AABE

Technically speaking, “infinity” is just about the only thing that’s impossible to achieve with a piece of architecture. Still, the Infinity House gives it a pretty good shot. This remarkable property is built on a high coastal cliff with its many large windows facing out towards the ocean, presenting the horizon as a near seamless continuation of the building’s interior. The strict white color scheme plays off against the blue of the water, sky and open-air swimming pool, creating a sense of continuity throughout the space. Meanwhile, the monotone surfaces reflect light inside the building, subtly shifting in color as the sun moves through the sky. Punctuated throughout are Sabine pines – a slow-growing species of tree that feels highly appropriate for a space in which time seems to stand still. Or, at least, one in which you wish it would.
