Casa Brutale

Casa Brutale

Casa Brutale is proposed to be built into a cliff somewhere in Beruit. Designed by ARUP, this is a quite an interesting, but spartan, house design. The key elements I like about this house is its proposed low energy footprint. The pool acts as a natural light source and cooling tower, while the thermal mass of the ground keeps the temperature relatively stable.

I wonder about the other utilities that they need, like electricity. Would be great if there was a solar component to all this.
