Weighing over 66 tons, it has a glass-bottom floor and a panoramic window at the interior-facing edge. This allows for swimmers to look inside the house, and those using the kitchen to see who’s in the pool.

From the architect. Located in Marbella, on the Mediterranean coast of Spain, the Jellyfish House’s neighboring buildings block its view onto the nearby sea. Appropriately, it was chosen to cantilever the house’s pool from its roof, so that the beach and sea can always be seen while sunbathing or swimming. The house is organized around two paths of circulation: a ‘fast’ and ‘slow’ set of stairs, which intertwine and traverse the house’s four levels of living.
