The earth structure houses provide organic forms, their development requiring creativity and a strong sense of space and was designed by Peter Vetsch, are based on the interpretation of an environmentally conscious, ecological and progressive architecture.
The earth- covered houses are grouped centered around a small artificial lake with the entrance well hidden and integrated at the side of the settlement.
Located in Dietikon, Switzerland the Earth House Estate Lättenstrasse is build on the ground.The residential settlement consists of nine houses, three 3 bedroom, a 4 bedroom, a 5 bedroom, three 6 bedroom and a 7 bedroom house.The earth-house concept uses the ground as an insulating blanket that efficiently protects it from rain, low temperatures, wind and natural abrasion. An earth house does not have to be built under the ground, it can be placed onto naturally grown terrain. For more information of this project please check this.
