The House at Jardin del Sol project, designed by Corona + P. Amaral Architects is a monolithic concrete and glass house over a timber platform located at the edge of a cliff in Tenerife, Canary Islands, Spain. The unique site and shape of the 4,186 square foot (388.97 square meters) house was developed in order to enjoy the amazing views of the 300 meters cliff, a 100 meters long black sand beach, mount Teide and all the north coast of Tenerife island.

Bedroom and service areas are located in a one-storey rectangular volume which enters into a double high volume containing the living-room, studio and kitchen. Both volumes organize an L-shape around the black paddle located at the edge of the platform so water surface gets mixed with the one of the sea, so all the areas of the house enjoy the views underlined by wood and water.

The interior and exterior finishing of the closed volume consists in treated concrete while complete walls are used in the facades facing the views. Protection is solved with timber shuts in the bedroom area and outside canvas stores in the living room.

A gym is located in the basement with direct access from the terrace and views to the inside through a glass wall.

A steel and wood freestanding canopy provides shadow to the central part of the terrace. Gardening, based in the use of local cliff species, is located in the slope between the street and the built volume so the house seems to be inserted into the natural cliff .
