Located in a charmingly traditional Swiss mountain village, this stunning subterranean home coexists quite comfortably amongst the more typical chalet style homes. The house is recessed snuggly into the hillside and nestles unobtrusively in a sheltered ‘dish like’ elliptical basin. Despite its highly original design, the discrete setting of the ‘Underground House’ doesn’t distract from the general picturesque nature of its immediate surroundings.
