The ‘Organic House’ Is An Underground Home Perfectly Fit For Any Hobbit

Conceived by renowned Mexican architect Javier Senosiain, this 1985 house is a perfect example of ‘organic architecture’ that takes its shapes from nature and aims for minimal impact on the environment. The green dune wraps itself around the inside spaces almost completely, rendering it almost invisible to the passer-by.

“To take a walk in the garden is to walk over the roof of the house itself without even realizing it,” Senosiain said. The Mexican architect is famous for his organic architecture—to date, he has built houses inspired by the shape of a snake, a shark, and a flower to name just a few.

“The aim was to create surroundings similar to the maternal cloister,” the architect wrote on his website. “To the refuges of animals or to those of early humans, who made use of caves without modifying their environment, to igloos and all such sheltering spaces: concave like the arms of a mother cradling her child, continuous, ample, and comprehensive.”

“They are spaces whose changing lights and forms are adapted to the natural rhythms of the people who live in them, where the furnishings are integrated with the surroundings, facilitating circulation and making the most of the area available.”
