What Houzz contributors are saying:
Dutch Mountain, by Denieuwegeneratie (New Generation), the Netherlands (2011)This sustainable house is embedded in a wooded Dutch moor where the ground rises up like a small mountain, absorbing the house back into itself. According to the architects, embedding the house in the hill insulated the home but also hid it. The homeowners enter through a cutout section in the mountain.
What Houzz users are commenting on:
Follow the curves of nature, reflecting these lines internally for a more wholesome approach. Humans feel better with soft curves than angular, mirroring what occurs in the natural world. The living roof, here with snow makes it feel even more cosy.
