The #LiveGardenHouse in #Spain is a zero-energy building hidden under a rolling hill.

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 <a href="http://www.arquinatur.com/contacto-contact-us/" target="_blank">Arquitecturas Naturales S.C.</a> 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 <a href="http://inhabitat.com/tag/natural-ventilation/" target="_blank">natural ventilation</a> and has a rainwater collection system.
