This dramatic cliff-top hideaway would be a likely retreat for 007, 008 or even 009


This uncompromising design by Open Platform for Architecture might be the perfect way to get a way from it all – after all it looks like it’s from another time as well as another place.

What the architect’s said:

Casa Brutale is an unclad statement on the simplicity and harmony of contemporary architecture. It is a chameleonic living space, created to serve its owner and respect the environment.

The residence is constructed with simple materials: wood, glass and concrete, at the convergence of the surrounding earth and water.

The landscape is integral to the underlying concept, since elements penetrate and prevail over the construction.

The roof of Casa Brutale, a glazed bottom swimming pool, is a continuation of the poetic Aegean Sea and in perfect communication with the vast blue of the Greek sky.

In essential simplicity, Casa Brutale is defined by three thick concrete slabs with all the installations preformed.

The crystalline pool, made by reinforced glass, is set between the walls to smoothen the hard materials and let the abundant natural light through, illuminating the residence.

And small details of black-coated steel and brown/red aged wood complete the composition.
