Earth peel

subterranean residence

Nestled within the slopes of Tinos, Greece, lies a marvel of architectural ingenuity - a subterranean house that seamlessly integrates with its natural surroundings, reminiscent of the earth peeling away to reveal its inner sanctum. This dwelling, aptly named "Earth's Embrace," embodies a harmonious coexistence between human habitat and the environment, blending modern comfort with the timeless beauty of nature. At first glance, the residence appears as a gentle bulge on the slope, with the contours of the earth gracefully enveloping its form. The facade mimics the organic lines of the terrain, employing locally-sourced stone and earth-toned materials to create a seamless transition between the built structure and the landscape.
