Sure, we’ve all heard of living off the land, but how would you like to live IN the land? A few architects have made it possible, and the homes they have designed are nothing short of spectacular.
This new school of design has gone beyond traditional structure-focused architecture and instead, creates homes that exist in harmony with the landscape. In a way, these architects are going back to our roots-borrowing techniques from ancient Native Americans and others who mastered sustainable living in the land.
From pit-houses to cliff-side homes, these embedded structures are a perfect, eco-conscious combination of modern design and old-world wisdom.
Imagine a bugout bag that is built into the landscape. I mean, we are talking about bridging the gap between emergency shelter and a home.
Anytime that you are moving into the earth you are going to be regulating temperature and that can go a long way. You get a comfortable steady temperature that can be great for storage and living.
Cover and Concealment
Having a place that is built into the earth is really designed for concealment. That can make all the difference in an SHTF situation.
When it comes building into the ground you really have very few limits. If you have the money to get into the ground with machines you can get as deep as that money takes you. That means you are pretty much limitless on things like storage.
That’s a big deal. We all suffer from storage issues and building into the ground could make all the difference.
Maybe living on land is one thing but living in the land is another thing. This delicate balance between a bunker and a living space is a very interesting little idea. You might want to consult some architects to really see what’s possible.
