Featuring 10 of the most daring cantilevered buildings recently published on Dezeen, this roundup showcases the architectural marvels from around the world.

First on the list is Casa Himmel in Paraguay, designed by Bauen. Set amidst the forests of Guaira, this structure boasts three concrete walls that project out over the lush landscape. Manufactured in just 60 days and assembled in seven, the glass and steel house is a stunning example of modern architecture.

Next up is The Nova Residence in the USA, designed by Harding Huebner. Located in Asheville, it features a cantilevered steel structure that leans out over a wooded slope. With an L-shaped, two-storey design and a low, overhanging rooftop, this residential building is an elegant masterpiece.

Casa Encoique in Chile, designed by Izquierdo Lehmann, is another striking cantilevered building. It includes wood-clad en-suite bedrooms that extend from a circular glass pavilion nestled within a forest. Connected to an existing holiday home via a concrete walkway, this building accommodates multiple generations.

The Wabi Sabi Residence in the USA, designed by Sparano + Mooney Architcture, is clad in blackened-cedar and features two sliding envelopes over a canyon near Salt Lake City. The three-bedroom home’s floor-to-ceiling glazed ends seemingly levitate over the natural landscape.

CH73 House in Mexico City’s Bosques de las Lomas neighborhood, designed by LBR&A, breaks the paradigms of construction. This residence includes a dramatic cantilever overlooking a sloping site, aiming to integrate with the natural landscape despite the effects of past developments.

The Hub of Huts wellness centre, part of the Hotel Hubertus in South Tyrol, Italy, designed by Network of Architecture, takes inspiration from reflections in water. Supported by tree-like columns, it appears to be an inverted village suspended in mid-air.

The Olancha Drive house in Los Angeles, designed by Anonymous Architects, balances on a concrete plinth that cantilevers off the steep site. With a 1,000-square-foot building that sits on friction piles driven into the ground, this structure defies gravity.

T House in Sweden, designed by Spridd, is a T-shaped house covered in raked concrete. Built on the island of Nacka in Stockholm, it is wedged between rocks and expands outwards at its top storey, forming two cantilevered structures that house an open-plan living space.

Elliott Architects’ House on a Bay in Maine boasts a dramatic cantilevered volume extending towards the ocean. With a rectilinear ground floor and stilts supporting the upper volume, this seaside house captures the essence of modern design.

Lastly, Caddy Shack in Austin, Texas, designed by Olson Kundig, stands out with its rusted steel cladding and stilt system. This allows the building to hover above the suburban neighborhood, with a cantilevered deck featuring a swimming pool and hot tub.

These cantilevered buildings exemplify the innovation and creativity of architects around the world, pushing the boundaries of design and construction.
