Is This the Most Spectacular Pacific Ocean Lookout Ever?

Designed by Schmidt Arquitectos Asociados, the Pigeon Loft is the perfect spot to take in views of the Pacific Ocean through an all-glass exterior. Its minimalist-but-rustic feel comes from the house's unlikely origins: most of its construction materials were leftover from the architects' previous projects. Spare windows and doors from an office became its windows and balcony doors; wood structure discarded from another building became its support posts. Inspired by Mies van der Rohe's Farnsworth House, the Pigeon Loft features one expansive living and sleeping space; the bathroom and kitchen are hidden behind bookshelves at the house's rear.
