A Closer Look

These pre-fab homes are designed to exist beneath turf and soil. The houses are made from prefabricated vaulted metals mass-produced with composite laminate materials. The structure uses perforated flaps to seal the bits & pieces together. The walls are enclosed in reinforced soil, supporting the hobbit-hole home.

The technology used in their construction borrows from earth construction & stabilization methods, including superdobe and geotextiles. Channels for wiring and water-piping, as well as composite ducts and mechanical ventilation ducts are all able to be fitted to the modular shell at any time.

The inner-shell of each home is quite a remarkable invention intelligently and uniquely solving the key problems of ventilation and water-proofing which are typically faced by those constructing structures below the Earth’s surface: It is modular, robust, water-tight and designed to structurally collaborate with the ground.
