The Live Garden House is a green-roofed, vaulted home built using traditional techniques in Zaragoza, Spain that is hidden underneath the curves of a rolling hill. Spanish designers Alberto Monreal and Elisa Durán of Arquitecturas Naturales S.C. created this beautiful home by focusing on sustainable construction methods and locally-sourced building materials. Their efforts resulted in a nearly zero-energy building that captures sunlight, features natural ventilation and has a rainwater collection system.

 

It's built into the contour of the hill making it extremely insulated and in need of little if any un-natural cooling methods.
