Magnified Modern Hobbit Homes

These BAUEN Luque Residences are Scaled-Up Sophisticated Hill Houses

— October 10, 2012 — Eco
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.
Trend Themes
1. Green Roof Architecture - Opportunity for architects to design sustainable buildings with extensive curving green roofs.
2. Natural Illumination - Opportunity to create homes that optimize natural light and minimize artificial lighting usage.
3. Seamless Integration with Landscape - Opportunity to design homes that blend harmoniously with hilly landscapes through innovative architectural techniques.
Industry Implications
1. Architecture - Architects can explore new designs and materials to create sustainable and visually appealing structures.
2. Real Estate - Real estate developers can market homes that prioritize natural light and integration with the surrounding landscape.
3. Construction - Construction companies can specialize in building environmentally friendly and aesthetically pleasing homes.
