The novelty of living in a hobbit hole would likely wear off fairly quickly. On the other hand, the experience of occupying one of these BAUEN Luque residences would not. The pair of contemporary Paraguayan homes embraces the best features of its rolling hilly landscape yet there has been no compromise on space or natural illumination.

The architectural firm responsible for these fantastically fabulous dwellings wished to build a set of abodes that would nestle into their setting. Mimicking the lush undulating earth, both houses feature extensive curving green roofs that replace the excavation below. Beautiful stone masonry builds up the base of the BAUEN Luque residences, upon which vast panes of glass have been installed for sweeping views of the South American countryside.
