Living Like A Hobbit In An Earth House



Have you ever wanted to live like a hobbit? This vision was made reality by Swiss architect Peter Vetsch when he designed his earth houses. These eye-catching houses are integrated into the natural landscape and although they are reminiscent of “hobbit-holes,” they are incredibly stylish. Beyond that, earth houses are designed to help protect against natural disasters. Instead of blocking land areas so that the chances of flooding during heavy rainfall increase, they help prevent that from happening. Plus, they’re an architectural experience. Who hasn’t wanted to live in a house with curved walls?

  1. I love the look of these buildings. The human race creates an eyesore wherever we live, but these houses actually just look like a grassy field from above. So many large houses are just ugly eyesores.

  2. Nothing about the systems in the house?
    Earth homes in South West USA, have back walls (north walls) that retain heat, recycle waste water to grow plants, collect rain water, use solar for lighting and cooking. Do these houses have similar systems ?

  3. "The Crimean peninsula" is part of Ukraine, you didn't specify what parts of Germany and Switzerland the houses were built in. This is incorrect, and somewhat even supports Russian occupation.
