Some Outstanding Underground Homes Around The World
Gary Neville stays in a dream world situated beneath the ground. This structure manages to combine beauty with functionality in a new and unique way. The residence covers nearly 8,000 square feet but not in the way you would expect it to. It's a one-story structure that was built underground. One of the main goals when designing the residence was to create something that would keep energy consumption to a minimum and that would be an eco-friendly version of a standard home. Awesome, isn't it?
#9 The One With Alpine Views
This is a very refreshing house merely by the way it looks. This house is also built into the hillside yet the design is completely different. This underground home is the result of the collaboration between Netherlands architects from SeARCH and Christian Muller Architects. Located in the Swiss village of Vals, the house is quite difficult to spot out as it’s part of a cluster of mountain houses.
#8 Woodlyn Park
Woodlyn is one of the finest underground residence ever. Located in Woodlyn Park on the North island of New Zeland. This place started as the only motel with a U-drive jet course and it later became the first hobbit motel in the world. It was built using polystyrene blocks and this allows each room to stay cool in the summer and warm in the winter. It's an interesting and effective insulation method, considering the uniqueness of the project.
#7 Eco-Friendly Village
Its always good to be Eco friendly. In fact being eco-friendly along with underground is just as brilliant as an Iron man series. This is an eco-village and it has huts made of straw and mud that have been built into the hills. The houses look very interesting and very charming. Besides having these eco-friendly homes, the people living here also generate their own power and grow their own food.
#6 Lord of the Rings
Just imagine how brilliant is this Lord of the Rings underground house. Those hobbit houses have become a great symbol and have inspired lots of projects. But if you want to see the real houses from the movies and not replicas, you can go to Matamata in New Zeeland.
#5 Bella Vista
Bella Vista is an eco-friendly underground Hotel. Lots of people have opted for sustainable designs for their private homes and even larger projects have been designed. There are many eco-friendly hotels that have emerged or that have been redesigned. The Bella Vista Hotel is just one of them and is incredibly beautiful.
#4 Cave in Missouri
This is an extremely complicated design. Most underground homes or structures are built into the hillside, following the model offered by the Lord of the Rings movies. But there are also other possibilities to explore. For example, a cave would be a very logical and simple solution.
#3 Earth Shaped House
Earth shaped house under the earth is definitely a brilliant concept. Located in Dietikon, Switzerland, these unusual underground structures introduce a new and original concept related to eco-friendly, progressive architecture. This area is called the Earth House Estate Lättenstrasse and it was designed by Peter Vetsch. The development is composed of nine houses, three of which have three bedrooms, one with four bedrooms, one with five bedrooms and three homes with six bedrooms as well as a seven-bedroom structure.
#2 The Malator house
This is one of the most gorgeous underground houses you'll ever find. Most underground homes that are built into the hillside have lateral openings that represent the entrance and that make them visible. However, it's not exactly the case for this home. This is the Malator house and it's located on the Welsh coast. It’s very difficult to find it when you don’t know exactly its location because the house almost disappears entirely into the ground.
#1 Aloni House
This is considered as a masterpiece. One way of making your home integrate into the landscape like it was part of it is to use the materials found in the area for the construction and to make the house disappear into the scenery. It's why most hillside houses we've presented have been built into the hill and using locally-sourced materials such as stone or wood.
