THE UNDERGROUND HOUSE
NCaved is a house located on a small secluded rocky cove on Serifos Island, Greece hovering just above sea level and appears to disappear into the rugged cliff-side. The need to create a protected shelter led Mold Architects to the decision to drill the slope, instead of arranging a set of spaces in line at ground level.
The front is fully open to the east view, while the rear windows frame indoor gardens, enhancing the air flow and letting light into the residence. Lighting and ventilation with front and rear openings, stone, a planted flat roof, suitable insulation, as well as energy-efficient glass panels complete the picture.
