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.
