Az Égei-tengeren egy meredek sziklafal peremén épülhet meg a Casa Brutale elnevezésű sziklába süllyesztett, medence tetejű óceánház.

Can You Imagine Living On A Cliff? This House Is Nestled Inside One.

It's equal parts beautiful and terrifying.

If it's your dream to have the perfect view of the Aegean sea in a secluded area, and you aren't afraid of heights — like, at all — you may have just found your dream home.

Casa Brutale is a conceptual home designed by Netherlands-based architectural company Open Platform for Architecture (OPA), and it's meant to be built within a cliff on an Aegean Island. Yeah, you read that right — It would be wedged literally inside of a cliff. The minimalist design would be built using glass, wood and concrete.

Aside from the view, the roof design may just be the best part: It's a swimming pool crafted with reinforced glass, set between the concrete walls of the home. Entering the cliff house means descending 50 stairs or taking the elevator. Once you're in, huge glass windows let an abundance of light flow through the residence.

The buried dwelling will be bracketed by three board-marked concrete slabs, while a fourth glazed wall will allow views of the valley to take centre stage. A glass-bottomed pool will allow light to shine into the earth-encased living spaces.

"Designed for the people that want to live, literally and figuratively, on the edge, Casa Brutale was deemed to be a house suitable for James Bond.," said Laertis-Antonios Ando Vassiliou and Pantelis Kampouropoulos of OPA.

A flight of concrete steps will lead down into a crevice beside the pool to the entrance of the property, where a small balcony will cantilever over the valley.

Renderings show minimal interiors featuring cast-concrete furniture with wooden elements, and walls covered in mirrors.

A steel staircase will link the two floors of the 270-square-metre residence and "secret" parking will provide parking for at least three cars.
