Forget hanging your home off the side of a cliff — Casa Brutale by OPA sits inside a cliff, instead. This concept design is defined by the three concrete walls that form the main living space. In order to let in plenty of light, the sea-facing front wall is all glass, as is the bottom of the roof-mounted swimming pool, creating undulating wave patterns as the sun shimmers through. The house is accessed via a stairwell that runs from the top all the way to the glass-paneled balcony at the bottom, inviting guests to take in a little fresh air before entering the home.
