'Casa Caldera' is an off-grid house located near the US-Mexico border that was recently re-designed by DUST to be a secure and sustainable vacation home.

The house is made of "LavaCrete" -- a material made partially from volcanic rock -- and is camouflaged by the nature surrounding it. The off-grid house features a sleeping area, a dining area, a lounge, a kitchen, two bedrooms and a bathroom. Heat comes from its stove and a fireplace, while windows are small to prevent overheating in the summer. The highly secure vacation home boasts secure, metal doors and is bathed in natural light throughout the day.

The home's simple yet rustic interior and secure yet isolated location will make an excellent vacation home for those seeking solitude in a natural environment. Photo Credits: gizmag, designboom
