We’re always so busy looking upwards at the impressive buildings around us, that we often don’t realize what lies beneath the surface. This is the exquisite hidden villas in Vals, Switzerland and this one is designed to blend in with its surroundings. SeArch and Christian Müller are the people behind the beautiful design, and this villa is located close to the Vals thermal baths. By going underground, they didn’t block any of the pristine views and the ground keeps the building warmer in winter, and cooler in summer. This building is definitely in harmony with nature.
1 - Ups and Downs… The UK is our final destination, and we pop in for a visit at Sedum House in Norfolk. Although parts of the house are above the ground, most of the home has been built into the ground. They focused on the sun, and they’ve built wooden covers to ensure the glass doesn’t get too hot in summer, but doesn’t deflect any sun during the winter. The bedrooms are all underground, which receives natural insulation.
2 - Suits you down to the ground… It’s not just people’s homes that have made the transition to go underground, but there are also several hotels where you can stay, to experience it for yourself. They include Beckham Creek Cave Lodge in Arkansas, The Kelebek Special Cave Hotel in Turkey and the Sala Silver Mine in Sweden, just to name a few!
3 - General Direction… Down
This absolutely bizarre looking home has been dubbed the Telly Tubby house, and it’s located in Wales. It’s a contemporary home, considered an architectural masterpiece. The entire house is underground, and it was designed by Future Systems. It was owned by Bob Marshall-Andrews, a former member of Parliament and is essentially just one big room inside. Coloured pods have been used to divide the rooms up, and the house blends perfectly with the natural landscape around it. It’s called Malator House, and with it being entirely underground, like all our previous homes – boasts passive energy control.
4 - Brought down to earth… We head over to Poland and take a peek inside an underground home in Lower Silesia. This unusual home is invisible from pretty much every angle, and not everyone can access the grass rooftop, only those living in the home. This home, designed in 2007, allows for some windows which let in quite a bit of sunlight.
5 - It’s a downward spiral… We literally go down under, in the land also considered down under. In Australia, you’ll encounter Coober Pedy, a little Australian town where everyone lives below the surface. This underground town is 846km north of Adelaide, and around 3500 people live there. The view from above makes you believe the place is deserted, so it’s bizarre to discover that there are homes, a church, museums, casino, a pub and even a gift shop, all under your feet! It was established in 1915, where people made the area their home due to the large amounts of opal there. Searing day time temperatures made it impossible to live above ground, so they went under. This is definitely a spot to put on your bucket list.
