Here's Hoping This Sexy Abode Doesn't Tumble Into the Sea

Add the Tula House on Canada's Quadra Island to the absurdly long list of extreme, cliff-side homes that—just like a bunch of foolhardy, daredevil teens— exist solely to make everyone feel nervous. Designed by Vancouver-based Patkau Architects, the new home sits where there was once only a dilapidated cabin, and is anchored in by steel rods so as to "tread lightly on the ground and cantilever above the Pacific Ocean." Inside, floor-to-ceiling windows make for slightly terrifying 360 degree views of the island, while James Bond-ready decor—think lots of black leather and a sexy courtyard pool—offsets the vibrant surroundings. Take a closer look, this way.
