The Snow House is a Mild-Manned Mountain Abode

Xella cellular concrete blocks are the inspiration behind the Snow House, designed by Chilean architects Nicolas Dorval-Bory, Juan Carlos Lopez Huerta, and Emilio Marin. The design provides little excitement from the outside, but the beauty is found in the functionality.

Snow House is meant to be a mountain home where outside temperatures are nearly always freezing. Snow House is black, so it will absorb as much heat from the sun as possible, and it has an ingenious internal design that you can see in the diagrams in the gallery.
