This lovely underground home is slated to be the first zero-carbon home in the North West of England. Designed by Make Architects, this 4-bedroom oasis leaves the views of nature in tact above the ground while creating spaces filled with light and space below the ground plane. The project utilizes thermal mass benefits, will use a ground source heat pump, and renewable energy and expects to create more energy than it requires. Although buried in the earth, the strategy provides plenty of natural ventilation and sunlight, while creating privacy and spaces for reflection at the same time.
When can we visit? I have my bags packed…

Thanks to Jon Kaufmann for bringing the beautiful project to my attention.
