A House Under The Grass

 Environment Architecture House Spain Sea Modern Grass
At first sight, the place seems inhospitable. A rocky cliff facing North, unsheltered, where the wind blows cold and makes the waves break would seem the last place you would want to build your house in. But its owners didn't think the same way and, thus, an unusual building of angular, but sober, lines was built to merge perfectly with the surrounding environment. Located in Loredo, in the north coast of Spain, facing the Cantabrian Sean (Bay of Biscay), the OS house, a project by the Nolaster group of architects, has, as its main characteristic, its covering, which is none other than grass.
Solutions of this kind aren't usually very creative, but this one has a striking appearance that is deeply connected with the landscape whatever the point of view. The dark, wood box is slightly sunk in the field, so as to not interrupt the horizon with its bulk. This gives it, at the same time, shelter from the wind. There is a strong anchorage to the ground, from where stairs and vegetation emerge, reminding us of a ruin that, as time goes by, is claimed by Nature.
