Casa Horizonte

This fantastic house is currently being built and designed by BIOhabitate. The built area is 150m2 and the walls are done with earth bags, giving it its charecteristic organic design. No need to mention the beautiful view on the sunrise, I guess…

Let’s remember that earthbag building is a very inexpensive method to quickly build strong structures, that can be resistant enough to withstand earthquakes, fire and flood (see especially Cal-Earth). Funny fact, Nader Khalili (1936-2008), one of the spiritual fathers of the earthbag construction nowadays, proposed using the techniques of earthbag construction for building structures on the Moon.
