Hanging on a cliff

The Casa Brutale concept home from Open Platform for Architecture (OPA) excites the senses with its startling setting on the side of cliff.

OPA envisions the residence built into a cliff above the Aegean Sea. It's designed to fit flush against the top of the cliff, maintaining a low but breathtaking profile.

Casa Brutale's sense of drama

There is a sense of theater to the Casa Brutale home concept from Open Platform for Architecture. The designers imagine it cutting into a cliff with views out and beyond. Large swathes of glass emphasize the precarious setting.

A bedroom with a view

Imagine sleeping in a bedroom where you only have to turn your head to see far out to the sea from a cliffside viewpoint. This render shows the living space inside the Casa Brutale concept home. It's a heart-pounding idea for a residence.

Indoor fountain, outdoor sea

A small indoor fountain echoes the look of the sea  and the overhead pool in this render for a concept home. The Casa Brutale residence from Open Platform for Architecture features massive windows and a dramatic setting placing it into the side of a cliff. The home plays with the concept of concrete-laden Brutalist architecture built from the 1950s through the 1970s.

A pool overhead

Taking a swim would never be the same again if the Casa Brutale concept home is ever built. It features a glass-clad pool set level with the top of a cliff. This is the view from inside the home looking up underneath the pool.

Entering Casa Brutale

Concrete, wood and glass are the primary materials that would greet visitors to Casa Brutale, a concept residence created by Open Platform for Architecture. This image shows the entrance to the home, which is imagined as  cliff-clinging building with endless views of the Aegean Sea.

Dining with concrete

A long concrete table decorates the inside of the Casa Brutale concept home. The geometric interior melds with the strong lines of the exterior. Large windows show off a devastating view emphasizing the home's fantastical setting in the side of cliff.

Casa Brutale at night

This render shows what the Casa Brutale concept home would look like lit up in the dark as seen from a distance away from its cliff-side location. The concept comes from Open Platform for Architecture, a group also responsible for imagining a land-bound hotel shaped like a vintage ocean liner and a car that melds the looks of combination a Camaro and El Camino.
