Ten Hobbit-styled houses seemingly inspired by Tolkien
This one is not exactly new, but nevertheless pretty cool. Architecture mag freshome put together a short feature celebrating the design and architecture of some of the most striking architecture projects that resemble or are derived from the Hobbit holes of The shire. Check it out and enjoy!
#1.Sustainable Woodland Home in West Wales
Simon Dale of Wales envisioned a sustainable woodland home in a hill on the countryside, which may be considered “cartoony” enough to match the small hobbit homes from the Lord of the Rings. The project is daring, highly practical and it only cost its owner £3,000 to build. A nice way to escape the hassle of monthly energy bills, wouldn’t you agree?
