What Houzz contributors are saying:

If the previous example uses a cantilever to minimize its footprint on a difficult site, this house in Australia by Ian Moore takes a similar approach, if not very apparent at first. This view of the entry walkway shows a rectangular bar cantilevering on both ends; a symmetrical composition lifting the house above the land sloping away from it.
John Hill added this to Bridges Home: A Sense of Entry
This linear house is perched upon a hilltop, apparently cantilevering itself from this wide walkway. As in the previous photo, this house opens itself up visually to reveal the vista as one walks along the bridge. The lack of railings makes the approach quite abstract, as if the surface is simultaneously an extension of the street and the house's floor.
John Hill added this to Home Design: Living La Vida Linear
This linear building appears quite wide from this entry approach, but the shallow depth of the plan is apparent in the transparency of the room beyond the bridge. The way the house cantilevers at both ends accentuates the length of the house, making it appear to balance on this entry plane that slides under the house. See inside, next.
Steven Corley Randel, Architect added this to Roots of Style: International Style Celebrates Pure Form
Returning to the Sydney area, this Australian house provides symmetry in the entrance elevation, an overall trait not usually found in the International style. However, these houses normally follow a regular grid that may not be readily evident but can often be detected by the proportions assigned to their elevations. Notice the impact of proportion and repetition of the fenestration framed by the outline of the structure. The steel-framed and steel-clad body appears to float above the site, elevating the living areas to allow substantial views toward the coastline beyond. The use of modern machine-finished materials allows the flexibility that lets this house emphasize the spectacular natural setting without distraction.
