This Modern Pad Embedded in a Cliff is Actually a Firehouse

New, 1 comment

Playing off the now familiar trend of carving modern, yet rugged, space from cliffs, Italian architecture firm Bergmeister Wolf built this sleek firehouse by digging into a cliff in Margreid, Italy. The 7,400-square-foot hub, which includes two garages and admin offices, is essentially just three giant caverns blown into the landscape. While the sparse, imperfect interiors have an "undesigned" look, the caverns' façade is made with cool sheets of glass and granite, providing panache to the natural surroundings. Have a look, below.
