House Cave Is a Stunning Living Space Built into the Side of a Mountain
Have you seen this House Cave built into the side of a mountain? It’s a stunning living space built into the side of a mountain!
Can you believe it? The people who have taken this dream and put into practice are UMMO Estudio. They’ve created a luxurious cave that we don’t see often.
When you think cave, you think about the place where animals sleep, and sure as hell you don’t think luxury. Well, good thing we were wrong. A cave can be something nice, comfortable and why not luxurious.
The Cuevas Del Pino House designed by UMMO Estudio has transformed the place that was originally used as a shelter for livestock watchmen and transformed it into a stunning living space.
Located on the slopes of Sierra Morena, this home was rehabilitated by the Spanish architecture firm in a way that both preserved its raw design but also bringing it a lot of comfort and natural light.
A simple glimpse into the house and you’ll see the original walls that belonged to the shelter and also swooping heavy stone ceiling and walls.
We love this mixture of raw design mixed with luxury touches! We can’t get more of it! Just look at these pictures!
The details are also present, to create richness of both space and the materials they used. It is simply beautiful, don’t you agree?
But nothing compares with the remarkable way they found to let natural light make its way into the home.
“Within this dialogue we have created a new spatial experience that manages to value the tectonic nature of the area through the use of new architectural elements: clean and quiet volumes, bright and ample spaces, use of stone materials for the flooring, such as concrete or marble, glass openings to the south to conjure natural light and handcrafted wooden furniture to give warmth to the cave house.” – UMMO Estudios
Large windows and daylights fill the area with light, giving it a decidedly brighter feel not like you see in a regular cave.
The bathroom and kitchen also open directly onto the garden, a 3,000 square meter, harmoniously combining the elements of stone, marble, steel, glass and soil.
You might also need to know that the temperature stays at a constant 18 – 20 ºC all year round. Sounds fine by me.
Also, in 2009, hosted the filming of the movie “Through the Eyes of Ouka Leele”.
You can book a stay in the home starting at $130 a night. Are you ready to pack your bags and move into this stunning House Cave? If you not, I am!
