Underground house built inside a mountain

With oval-shaped opening opens to the sky this underground home that meets all the needs of a family.
A design for an underground shelter in the mountains that was resolved between the collaboration of the architectural SEARCH and Christian Muller Architects.

It is located in Switzerland, in the village of Vals, inserted in the mountains and if you look at the pictures carefully place is not home. Most of the construccón is therefore important that is made of concrete and stone, on the other side stands the magnificent views which manages to offer from all rooms.

All AEAs will give the oval patio also makes the role of income. Another input is given through an old cabin that is also connected underground. The oval aperture has many windows that let light and ventilate indoor environments naturally.

This project reflects the homeowner’s desire not to interfere with its construction in the views obtained from the thermal baths in Vals, a work by Peter Zhuntor (Prizker Award 2009)
