Laertis Antonios Ando Vassiliou and Pantelis Kampouropoulos are two Greek architects that have given a new definition to ‘living on the edge’.

Casa Brutale, a project of Open Platform for Architecture (OPA), is a vision of innovative architecture. It is the casa everybody dreams of living in to escape the chaotic life in the city.

Both creative and original, OPA’s project is a concept that will set the standards of architectural design that combines ambience and materiality.

Take a tour and change your idea of ‘living on the edge’.

Casa Brutale is an underground building which takes advantage of thermal insulation from the earth and cooling properties of its swimming pool.

Mary suffers from Type 1 Spinal Muscular Atrophy or Acute infantile/Werdnig-Hoffman disease, a disorder characterized by severe progressive muscle weakness and a limp or decreased muscle tone.

The pregnancy is always a joyful time for any couple. This period is filled with great anticipation as the husband and wife awaits for their new bundle of joy.

It’s an exciting, albeit undeniably challenging, time for the couple.

Of course, part of the thrill is to know how’s the baby doing and how he looks like inside the mom’s tummy. For the most part, sonogram technology is used for that. Expectant parents respond with great gladness as they eventually get a special peek of their offspring.

Dutch photographer Leonie Versantvoort and body paint artist Marieke Crone wanted to capture that tender moment. The two recently collaborated for a unique project that touches on the subject of pregnancy - and the result is pretty astounding!
