This House Hidden In A Cliff Has The Most Awesome And Terrifying View
Ever wanted a house inside a cliff near the sea? Then Casa Brutale is just up your alley. It’s a concept design by Opa Works celebrating the brutalist style of architecture. It’s also designed to mesh well with nature. The building is completely embedded in the cliff, so it can’t be seen from the surface, which means it doesn’t obstruct the view of the sea. It also enjoys thermal isolation from the surrounding ground and cooling effect of the pool that sits above the rooms. Not to mention the magnificent color effect a pool over you glass ceiling gives!
Opa Works is an architecture network by Greek architects Laertis Antonios Ando Vassiliou and Pantelis Kampouropoulos. The building would be built out of three concrete slabs, and feature concrete tables, benches and bed, all decorated with wood. It would be (brutally) minimalistic, with the major adorning feature being the imprints of boards used to shape the concrete.
