Just when you thought you are only enjoying the view. You’ll be surprised to know that those aren’t solar panels. They are actually windows of an underground house in England.
The house’s architect utilized the slopes in the area and made use of natural light and ventilation by having the house burrow backward into a rock.
4. Stone Desert Home in Greece
This underground house in Greece is a perfect example of a stunning balance between artificial dwelling and natural landscape.
