For the past twelve years, Joe Adsett Architects has been applying his deep-rooted passion for designing buildings that stand out, respond to the eccentricities of the terrain and stand the test of time. Cliffhanger House is just one of such a building.
The impressive, elegant and durable structure takes the form of a folded concrete shell, skilfully balanced on a cinderblock foundation that anchors itself to the sloping topography. Located in Toowoomba, a town in southeast Queensland, Australia, the residence embraces panoramic views from the crest of Australia’s famous Great Dividing Range.
The design features a 6.5-metre concrete cantilever and full-height glazing on the entire eastern facade.

Interior design choices match the exterior, softened by wood veneer in the living spaces and travertine-like porcelain in the bathrooms. Modernist furniture magnifies the spaces and combines it with soft textures and colours.
Joe Adsett also shines for his attention to detail in design, concealing elements for a sober, minimalist approach.
This refined palate both reflects and contrasts the breathtaking view, transforming this home into a truly warm and welcoming refuge.
