The stunning residence was designed by Madrid-based Gilbartolome Architects.
Built within a 42 degree slope, the cave house, with its infinity pool and stunning sea views is located near Salobreña, in the hills south of Granada on Spain’s southern coast.
"The form of the house and the metallic roof produces a calculated aesthetic ambiguity between the natural and the artificial, between the skin of a dragon set in the ground, when seen from below, and the waves of the sea, when seen from above," explained the architects Pablo Gil and Jaime Bartolomé.
Seen from above the zinc tiles are designed to look like waves.
The external curves give the house the appearance of a dragon emerging from its lair.
Every window boasts a stunning view of the sea.
