Seoul Gains An Underground House by Byoung Soo Cho

Called Earth House, it’s not as fancy as some iterations of the subterranean abode, drawing instead on Cho’s very unpretentious inspirations: Taoist minimalism and the utilitarianism of the silos, barns and sheds Cho has come to love as a professor at Montana State University. Arguably, the Korean House also reveals a love of big sky: the 23-foot square courtyard is really the crown jewel of the place, which consists of six tiny rooms built mainly of concrete and recycled wood. The courtyard walls also pay homage to the trees that were razed to build the house: They include cross-sections of the felled trees. As they decay, Cho hopes they will sprout grass, at least symbolically returning the human construction to the cycles of nature. The interiors also combine Japanese bathhouse aesthetics with agricultural inspiration. . + Byoung Soo Cho Via Dwell photos by Wooseop Hwang. Coolest underground homes.

Underground Home Uncovers One-Of-A-Kind Style

Share it: Dutch architects Denieuwegeneratie uncovered huge potential for an unusual home, funnily enough, buried into a mountainside here in a nature reserve in The Netherlands. The Amsterdam-based team, consisting of three young, forward-thinking architects, chose this underground placement not only for its lovely surroundings, artfully concealing the structure among trees and forest, but also for the thermal insulation factor. The underground home passively holds heat during the cold winter months and keeps cool in the hot summer, peeking out from the hillside on both sides with large glazed facades framed in wood.

Inside, the large, open-concept layout offers flexibility for living while giving the owners options to reconfigure the space as time passes and their needs evolve. Not without its own modern flair, this rustic home offers the best of both worlds. Then there are the quirky touches that provide one-of-a-kind flair. Edgeland House.
