This house isn’t tiny but it is an interesting approach that could be downsized to provide an interesting underground tiny home. The view from inside would be virtually non-existant but it would provide incredible privacy.
While this project is an addition to a much larger home, it seemed like a good one to share since it could stand-alone as a separate small underground home. Building underground always seemed like a great idea to me, even though it presents many unique challenges.
I grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area and have some very fond memories exploring the old bunkers on the Marin and San Francisco sides of the Golden Gate Bridge. Today many of them are welded shut but when I was a kid they were still open and fun (and dangerous) to explore. I often imagined what it would be like to convert these concrete structures into homes and little villages.
So when I saw this article on Inhabitat describing how someone is putting together a proposal for reusing these old bunkers in Albania I knew I had to share it with you.
Here’s a cool idea for a tiny house community; a tiny underground house community. I’m particularly fond of tiny underground house concepts but we don’t see too many of them.
