Cave Inspired House

Cave Inspired House

Unique house designed by Ensamble Studio looks like a cave equipped with modern bed, sink, shower, and a fireplace.

The exterior was made out of concrete and the interior volume was created using stacks of hay. It took one year for a cow named Paulina to eat all the hay and empty the cave. Truffle house is located in Laxe, Spain.

    Of course in our country, the land of the “free,” we are not free to build such dwellings as they violate codes!

    I can just imagine, someone asking where you live and you say “In a cave.”

    This is absolutely gorgeous!

    Beautiful! I wonder if the windows are big enough that they warm the place? If not, seems like a great idea yo have a half cave, half greenhouse dwelling. Seems like it would maintain the perfect temperature, and the perfect balance between cozy and airy.
