Casa Brutale

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 and received feedback both applauding the design and questioning the implementation of its construction.

Casa Brutale

The global consulting team ARUP was selected to address this implementation. The challenging and exciting task is conducted by ARUP’s team in Amsterdam in collaboration with the architectural office OPA.

Casa Brutale

Casa Brutale will be built on Faqra mountain outside Beirut, at an altitude of 1600m, and the future owner will be Alex Demirdjian, CEO of Demco Properties. More specifically, the site is located 150m below the peak of the mountain, 200 meters above RedRock Village and Spa, also owned and developed by Demco Properties.

Casa Brutale

The cliff residence has grown since the first concept and it is now 270 sqm (it used to be 180sqm) with an estimated project budget of 2.5 million USD. It can now accommodate up to six people, has an underground parking of up to three cars and a northwest orientation. Construction is expected to be completed in 2018.
