Modern House on Alaskan Rocky Cliff, Glass Extensions with Panoramic Views

Glass extensions add character to the contemporary home


The modern house Tongass Ledge sits on stacked rocks atop a rocky cliff overlooking the Alaskan shore. Beautiful glass extensions add bright living spaces to the house and offer panoramic views of the surroundings. The glass extensions create a feeling like a house is floating on water. A living area with a deck is a connecting space between the two structures.

The house’s exterior blends concrete, black metal, and wood siding. Wood continues to the home interiors, creating warm living spaces with a modern industrial vibe. The open living and dining rooms feature floor-to-ceiling windows opening the home interiors to the spectacular water views.

Modern interior design beautifully mixes modern furniture with concrete floors and soft textiles. Pink kitchen cabinets and white tiles look exciting, creating a delightful and warm space. A wood stove and window seat build a fantastic, inviting, and cozy place to enjoy the warmth during the long Alaskan winter.
