This organic Hobbit House is perfectly integrated into its environment and is almost invisible to passers-by

This house from 1985, conceived by the famous Mexican architect Javier Senosiain, is a perfect example of & # 39; organic architecture & # 39; that takes its shape from nature and strives for minimal impact on the environment. The green dune surrounds itself almost completely around the interior spaces, making it almost invisible to passers-by.

"To take a walk in the garden, you have to walk over the roof of the house without realizing it," said Senosiain. The Mexican architect is known for his organic architecture – so far he has built houses inspired by the shape of a snake, a shark and a flower to name just a few.

"The goal was to create an environment similar to that of the maternal monastery," the architect wrote on his website. "To the shelters of animals or to the first humans who used caves without changing their environment, to igloos and all such shelters: concave like the arms of a mother cradling her child, continuously, spacious and extensive. "

Considering the impact of bioclimatic conditions on the physical and psychological well-being of the residents, Senosiain used trees and shrubs to achieve multiple goals. They create green barriers that prevent sunlight, keep the interior cool and protect the house against dust and noise. In addition, the grass roof protects against heat and cold, keeping the inside temperature pleasant.

Although the interior of the house feels like an underground cave, it is connected to the outside by a large window.

The walls, ceilings and the built-in furniture are made of ferrocement coated with a paste of marble powder and white cement.

The living room has a hand-shaped chair by the Mexican artist Pedro Friedeberg and a bubble chair by Eero Aarnio.

"This semi-buried house turned out to be brighter and brighter than conventional houses because the windows can be placed anywhere and the domes allow the entrance of sunlight from above. Ventilation is made possible by the aerodynamic shape of the house, allowing free air circulation everywhere is possible. "

Modeled after a peanut shell, the house consists of two spaces connected by a narrow passage. One part contains the private zones, which are mainly used at night, while the other part contains the social spaces that are intended for daytime activities.

"The house, which includes a living room, dining room and kitchen, and another sleeping area, with a dressing room and a bath, was based on the basic functions that humans need: a place to live and fellowship with others," Senosiain said .

"They are spaces whose changing lights and shapes are adapted to the natural rhythms of the people who live in them, where the furniture is integrated with the environment, facilitates circulation and makes optimum use of the available area."
