Podgorny house: A home built inside a hill (16 Photos)

The “Podgorny house” is located in Vals, Switzerland. It is a post modern/bunker like house built into a substantial hill (I know, like the hobbits). I don’t know it’s kind of amazing. Your thoughts?

    I'm wondering how the he'll you build it. Carve it out and support it until they poured the steel/cement infrastructure? Or is it possible they built it and then created the hill around it?

    "Honey, can you go shovel the side of the house?"

  • cudaman

    Awesome, yes, but the front reminds me of a jack o lantern. As for the interior walls, you could either put up a false wall frame & sheet rock it in (adds more cost) or use an alternative way in securing your things to the wall. I would add an in door shooting range since it already has concrete walls B)

    so what happens if there's a landslide or avalanche ?

    I believe it's a bad idea to paint the concrete. Concrete is porous and allows water to seep through. If you cover one side with a latex paint and the other side is allowed to absorb water, you'll have problems when it freezes and additionally have a large pool of water hiding around your walls.
