This unique home called Villa Vals was built directly into the hillside in Vals, Switzerland- Christian Muller Architects.
Villa Vals - Vals, Switzerland Designed by Bjarne Mastenbroek and Christian Müller, respectively of the architectural offices SeARCH and CMA. Their design plan was to completely integrate the villa into the landscape to avoid disturbing the unspoiled nature.
Architects Bjarne Mastenbroek and Christian Müller, from the architecture companies SeARCH and CMA, built the Villa Vals inside a mountain close by the famous thermal springs of Vals in Switzerland. We can't imagine how wonderful it must be to wake up in this villa.
Bjarne Mastenbroek and Christian Müller, from the architecture firms SeARCH and CMA, collaborated in 2009 to build this vacation home near the world famous thermal springs of Vals in Switzerland.
Villa Vals: A home cut from a mountainside. Villa Vals is a rentable property in Switzerland that doesn't seem like it should exist in this century. One enters Villa Vals through an old barn on a mountainside.

For the interior the duo decided upon traditional contemporary Dutch design, creating a natural, serene environment. #switzerland
Beautiful use of space.
Coober Pedy, Australia: This small town in the middle of nowhere, Australia, is home to some of the strangest houses on Earth. A combination of climactic conditions and the existence of opal mining in the region have literally driven the residents underground. Everything from residences to churches are carved out of the ground as the above images show.

Hobbit house - for me this would be my Witch Home... a place to go to get away from modern day life... I'd like a nice garden and I could make my homemade bread and soups and read and make magic - Magick is undiscovered science and Science is discovered magick... (the 'k' distinguishes it from "pulling-the-rabbit-out-of-the-hat" magic... magick is real and created by you/energy/and the Universe

I recalled my dream house. It is a very beautiful sight where a house is sited on a mountain surrounded by terraced rice field. I can imagine that there will be many innovative ideas coming from this green-fresh-amazing view. I think many people will love and miss such this sight in today era. it is far from modernism but it may build ideas of modernism. - Double click on the photo to get or sell a travel itinerary to #China #travel

Underground House in Switzerland Like a modern hobbit house lol
Awesome place to visit. The building is underground. Underground homes are an attractive alternative to traditionally built homes for some house seekers, especially those who are looking to minimize their home's negative impact on the environment. Besides the novelty of living underground, some of the advantages of underground houses include resistance to severe weather, an exceptionally quiet living space, an unobtrusive presence in the surrounding landscape, and a nearly constant interior temperature due to the natural insulating properties of the surrounding earth. The greatest draw for most, however, is the energy efficiency and environmental friendliness of such houses. Because of the stable subsurface temperature of the Earth, heating and cooling costs are often much lower in an underground house than in a comparable above-ground house. When combined with solar design, it is possible to eliminate energy bills entirely. Initial building costs are also often exceptionally low, as underground building is largely subtractive rather than additive, and because the natural materials displaced by the construction can be recycled as building materials. However, underground living does have certain disadvantages, such as the potential for flooding, which in some cases may require special pumping systems to be installed. Underground living has been a feature of fiction, such as the hobbit holes of the Shire as described in the stories of J. R. R. Tolkien and The Underground City by Jules Verne. It is also the preferred mode of housing to communities in such extreme environments as Australia's Coober Pedy, Berber caves as those in Matmâta, Tunisia, and even Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station. Underground living is even being considered for the design of a future base on Mars. Completely underground homes need not be considered impractical or unaesthetic any longer. With today's technologies one can direct natural light into living spaces with light tubes. Virtual windows can provide any view one chooses by the use of cameras or internet cam feeds. Even whole walls can display whatever view one wants someday soon (wall-sized flat screen monitors are still too expensive to be widely used), possibly even with live ambient audio added. Also factories and office buildings would benefit too, for many of the same reasons (noise, energy use, security, community aesthetics, save space; park cars and trucks on top of it instead of next to it, etc.). Often, underground living structures are not entirely underground, typically if they are exposed on one side when built into a hill. This exposure can significantly improve interior lighting, although at the expense of greater exposure to the elements.
