- The Barrancas House is the result of the restoration of a house built in the seventies in Mexico City,
which didn´t have any attraction at first but had great spatial potential.
It became a challenge for our office to create a home focusing on
incredible attention to detail, modernity and discovery of the different
spaces and levels to generate expectation and surprise.
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.
