3 Houses Integrated Into Land
Underground houses are somewhat fairy-tale-like still. But there are more and more modern homes that are designed to fit the landscape and submerged into the site. It’s not only about impressive facade but also a sustainable design which reduces buildings’ carbon imprint and keeps the landscape more a less intact.
OUTrial House by KWK Promes is designed with the landscape in mind. Even though it’s not built into the ground the part of the site was elevated to cover the house’s roof which makes for great insulation and a rooftop lounging site.
Country Estate by Roger Ferris + Partners has a main structure built into the land providing a base for a glass pavilion-like structure that opens up to the green surrounding views.
BAUEN created two similar houses that are built on and into the green hills of land in Paraguay. Mimicking the shape of the hill the houses cut into the grass covered site and open up to the front and the back sides thanks to glass walls.
