This underground concrete home is the brainchild of SeArch and Christian Müller Architects. Located in Vals, Switzerland there are a myriad of famous thermal baths with amazing views nearby so in order to build close to the baths, the architects buried the house into the hill. The house has an oblique opening to allow the maximum amount of light to enter the home. In the designer’s own words,
“The introduction of a central patio into the steep incline creates a large façade with considerable potential for window openings. The viewing angle from the building is slightly inclined, giving an even more dramatic view of the strikingly beautiful mountains on the opposite side of the narrow valley.”

    I am simply visiting various websites to glean I deas for a home that I will build in the mountains of Eastern Ky. It will be a house that is self-sufficient to a large extent. I particularly like the entrance of this home, but not all of the concrete…… Different strokes,for different folk's… Right??
