Lefevre House: An Imposing Abode Overlooking the Ocean

It is homes like these that make us wonder if we should create a special category titled 'James Bond Villain Abodes' and file this along with a few others in there. Located in Punta Misterio, Peru, the Lefevre house conspicuously integrates into a cliff and juts outs majestically to offer mesmerizing views of the sea from most of its rooms. The house is built right into the cliff with some rooms even sharing stone walls. The project was undertaken by Longhi Architects, (also from Peru) who took this up as a challenge to design a structure that represented the meeting of 'Desert' and 'Ocean'.
