Seven Gardens House
Sculpted into the mountains in the southernmost region of Spain, the Seven Gardens House is a true work of art. Modeled after nearby caves and grottos, its grey stone facade hugs the hillside, curving around the terrain to reduce impact on the surrounding landscape. The layout is constructed from a mirrored pattern, creating a series of sheltered terraces that lead out to seven outdoor gardens — a feature that lends to the home's name. Large glazed panels break up the otherwise cumbersome exterior to bring in views of the Sierra de Grazalema in the rear and the Atlantic Ocean ahead.
