Casa Rufo by Alberto Campo Baeza

The hilltop Casa Rufo in Toledo, Spain was built by architecture firm Alberto Campo Baeza. Delicate glazing fits around a bulky but impressive concrete structure which provides impressive views stretching out over the hillsides, with a series of ground floor rooms giving way to a long and narrow rooftop atrium. A staircase leads directly down from here to the living room and dining room below, where the architects have placed the entrance. Rectangular cutaways provide open-air courtyards within the frame of the building, and rows of poplar trees behind the house screen it from views from the northeast.
