Residence In Paraguay Follows Nature’s Course Underground

It’s been a while since the last time I saw a great architecture, but that has changed today and so I am making up for this to myself and to you, as well, by presenting this wonderful residence in Paraguay. Don’t rush into making quick first impressions.

As much as the angular shape of the home or the triangle pool pop right into your face first, on a more careful look you see that most of the house it’s actually underground. BAUEN Architects made a good job projecting two homes this way. The transparency from the large windows and the exterior stone walls make it all seem even more natural, like the house was supposed to be there.

And the base of building underground was not just the stunning effect and leaving the landscape almost untouched, but the practical way in which the surrounding earth conserves the temperature during the year, protecting the interior from major variations
