AABE – Belgian architecture studio designed this see-through house featuring spectacular views of the Balearic coast in Spain. While living in a translucent house probably requires some getting used to, the simplicity and minimalism is just outstanding. The rooftop pool can be accessed via a simple white staircase, offering an almost perfect space for relaxation, just like the rest of the retreat. The architects themselves describe it, in rather dramatic and poetic fashion, as “A butterfly conservatory, the key thrown away: a space defined by the transparency of the windows, an infinite space where thoughts take flight at the whim of imagination.”
