Fascinating Underground Home Designs

For some, underground home designs allow them live in harmony with their surroundings and to more easily acknowledge the beauty in nature.

Generous patios, which are half-covered under the grassy roof of the Hilltop House’s main floor, take advantage of Gainesville’s warm, rainy climate. The front doors are recessed under the observatory room’s roof overhang, and an unroofed corridor between the house and its two-car garage creates a conventional entrance to an unconventional dwelling.
