Underground Mountain House...sigh

My jaw dropped when I saw this stunning Underground Mountain House located in the Swiss Village of Vals! I have a special place in my heart for underground homes. My grandparents live in a underground home that my grandpa built with his own 2 hands in the 70's (I think). I have dreams of getting my hands on it one day! It would make an incredible art studio!
So enough about my grandparents home. Let me just say this place is absolutely incredible, but see for yourself...

This unusual house plan is the collaboration between the Netherlands architects at SeARCH and Christian Muller Architects!


  1. Annie this home is astonishing. Love hearing about your grandparents home & the fact your granddad built it himself. Whose grandparents have lived in an underground home? That is incredibly cool. But then again, it was the 70's! Do you have photos?

  2. OMG Annie, this is stunning! I love that the shape of the mountain has been respected and all the different uses for wood. Simply amazing. xo

  3. I've been wanting to post pictures of it forever, but I don't have any! I am going to get some when I'm home for the holidays:-)

  4. Thank for sharing good and useful information. This information is very valuable.
