Well, I’ve always wanted an underground lair. Luckily, I’ve found one that looks more pastoral than evil and gloomy. Made of concrete and earth, this Swiss estate is a cluster of grass-blanketed houses encircling a pretty little lake.
According to Inhabitat, aside from using natural and recycled materials and having a green roof, the structure was built using typical earth house construction, resulting in an insulating blanket that protects it from rain, low temperatures, wind and natural abrasion.
Though it might not look like it, there are actually nine houses pictured here surrounding a lake – some that even boast seven bedrooms. I am dying to see what it looks like on the inside.
