L’Hôtel du Lac in Tunis, Tunisia by Raffaele Contigiani [1970-1974]. The conception of the hotel began shortly after Tunisia gained independence in 1956. The building is ten storeys and stands out from the all white city as a geometrically dynamic work of architecture cast in exposed concrete; it is by far the largest and greatest example of brutalism in the country. Each level grows in length, giving it its distinct inverted-pyramidical shape which is commonly juxtaposed with the hull of ship. The length of the 10th floor reaches 90 meters, twice as much as the foundation.


Casa Brutale - OPA

For the super-rich Bond villains of the world, OPA (Open Platform for Architecture) have produced this concept for a cliffside home straight out of James Bond. Overlooking the Aegean Sea, this residence of concrete and glass makes little impact on the landscape besides a rooftop pool (which casts incredible ripples through its glass bottom into the interior spaces) and a set of steps. Follow the steps downward and you’re faced with a full-height, full-width wall of glass providing amazing views out to sea. 

As would be expected from a brutalist concrete home, the interior features of Casa Brutale are minimal and spacious, all set below the most fantastic light show from the swimming pool above.
