Suppose Design Office Creates Illusion of Pit House

By: Christina Butty - Published: Jul 10, 2009 • References: & dezeen
Created by Japanese architects, the Suppose Design Office is a residence that is based on classic pit dwelling houses. The house has a hill made from excavated dirt and grass that has been structured around the first level of the residence like a border.

The mound of land around the house makes the first floor virtually invisible to all neighbors; however, the top half of the house stands amicably. Its cool trapezoid roof adds a ancient attitude to the whole design.

This pit dwelling house is located in Saijo, Hiroshima, Japan. Stats for Subterranean Residences Trending: Older & Mild
