Building houses underground once seemed like something that was only meant for our favorite superhero movies, but over the past few years many different dwellings like the Aloni Residence have proved this architectural feat can be done as a practical living space.
Dubbed the “house of the future” this stunning Bolton Eco House now joins the list of underground homes, but this one also does so in an eco-friendly manner. The Make Architects designed and built home is the first zero carbon property located in the North West of England. The one story home underground home is built into a hillside, and features four bedrooms, ground source heat pump, wind turbine, and photovoltaic panels to help generate on-site renewable energy. To continue with the sustainable theme, all of the materials used to build the dwelling were locally sourced as well.
