The city of Vals, Switzerland is known for its thermal baths. An ingenious homeowner, not wanting to disrupt the views of the baths, or the slope of the alps, took his home underground and the underground Vals house was born.

Introducing a concrete patio to the steep incline of the hills, allowed for tons of natural lighting, and great views of the opposite side of the narrow valley. By taking the design below ground, the design team of SeArch and Christian Muller Architects made one heck of an underground Vals house.
