'Casa Brutale' is the name of the design. This amazing home, designed by Greek architects Laertis Antonios Ando Vassiliou and Pantelis Kampouropoulos, showcases the powerful concrete style of architecture known as brutalism. This luxurious home is embedded into a cliff, creating a severe contrast between the stone and the open air with a mesmerizing view of the sea that is both magnificent and terrifying.
Vassilious and Kampouropoulos formed OPA Works. They envisioned the concept for the structure as "poetic homage to pure Brutalism." The ground level is actually the roof, which is comprised of roof-top pool with a clear bottom. The underground walls serve as insulation for the building and keep it cool.
Something about cliffs apparently excites the imagination of architects.
