Modern house design with floating stone wall
The floating stone wall design is one of the beautiful house design element that differ a simple modernist box from other houses. The wall made from stone harvested on the site itself looks harmonious, balancing the modern house design and adding more interest to architectural design.
The wall design creates an innovative element that does not rely on the ground at all for its founding, creating a visual illusion of floating in the air stone wall.
