Casa Brutale concept home would be built into cliff – CNBC

Talk about living on the edge.

Open Platform for Architecture has designed a concept home that would be built into the side of a cliff overlooking the Aegean Sea in Greece. OPA is looking for investors.

Casa Brutale, the name of the proposed home, is “an unclad statement on the simplicity and harmony of contemporary architecture,” according to OPA.

With a roof that doubles as a swimming pool, the jaw-dropping home also features a master bedroom, guest room, sculpted fireplace and a concrete dining table and benches.

Because OPA still has some technical details to iron out, the construction costs aren’t definite.

“The building [has to] be built in particular type of rock, which makes finding the appropriate plot more difficult,” OPA architect Laertis-Antonios Ando Vassiliou told CNBC. Still, the company estimates that construction will cost roughly 500,000 to 1 million euros.

Though Casa Brutale was designed with Greece in mind, OPA, which has an office there, is open to moving it elsewhere, if necessary.
