A Modern Rammed Earth House That Emphasizes Sustainability [Video]

The Earth House inspires a recall of sustainable living practices from our past. Created by Art and Architecture Associates, the 3000-square-foot house was designed to blend with the natural habitat amidst expansive farmlands. With a thick “skin” of rammed earth and other materials that were excavated from the site, the structure has reduced solar heat gain. This feature keeps the temperature between 7 and 10 degrees cooler than the tropical climate of Gujarat outside. Passive sustainable strategies reduce energy requirements in response to the global climate crisis. Both the facade and the interior of the three-bedroom home communicate a minimalist aesthetic with elements of nature woven through.
