Scottsdale, Arizona is the home to this example of earthy architecture. This residence takes advantage of local materials and landscapes to be both eco-friendly and modernly stylish.

The architectural firm Kendle created this home utilizing techniques that go as far back as rudimentary architecture itself. "Rammed" earth housing is a term that refers to using local materials—clay, mud, etc.—and ramming them together to form bricks and building materials. The result? Earthy architecture that saves money, increases style, and remains eco-friendly. Stats for Eco Earthy Architecture Trending: Older & Average
