A new trend in Green Architecture? Living in a cave.
But not just any cave, a luxury home built into a cave. Its a natural way to insulate a residence and it is energy efficient. Underground spaces are also very quiet and provide tranquility from road noise. These underground homes utilize the beauty of nature and leave the natural surrounding virtually undisturbed. Its the blending of architecture and environmental harmony.
But this idea of living in a cave is not new. Greece, Turkey & Israel all have luxury hotels built into caves. People have been hollowing out caves since the beginning of time to create shelter. Many old civilizations constructed entire cities built into mountains. The best example is the ancient city of Petra in Jordan with its beautifully carved columns and detailed facade.
