Live Like A Bond Villain In This Concrete Cliffside HomeAdd to Lightbox Download
A concept home designed by an Iranian architect wouldn't look out of place in the next James Bond movie as the villains evil lair.
Architect Reza Mohtashami’s most recent concept, the aptly named Concrete House, isn’t meant to be an evil lair as far as we know, but it certainly wouldn’t look out of place in a summer blockbuster.
The austere residence is a cliffside dwelling that somehow manages to look both sinister and beautiful at the same time.
No stranger to Brutalist-style buildings, Mohtashami’s latest design attempts to bring together the natural and unnatural.
In a series of renders created up by the designer himself, the curved structure, which is made almost entirely of concrete, can be seen protruding out of a frightening rock surface.
A significant portion of the dwelling juts out over the cliff’s edge, supported by a series of pillars.
While it’s clear the building does not belong there, Mohtashami has also managed to design a home that fits naturally into the surroundings.
"The exterior and interior concrete building, which rotates in the rocks and into the lake and the forest, can give the resident a feeling of relaxation." explains Reza.
Inside there's a stripped-down vibe to the curved living area but there’s more than enough room for everything you could need, including a kitchen, bedroom and an entertainment area that offers a completely unobstructed view of the surrounding landscape.
The large window is complemented by another that runs along the interior of the entire structure, flooding the space with natural light.
