If you are looking for the best combination of green design, innovative architecture and complete privacy all merged in one beautiful home, Llorenc House in Spain proves to be great inspiration.

Gorgeously designed by Eneseis Arquitectura, the green adobe maximizes the existing space and resources by creating a sustainable residence that is half-buried into ground.

Built on the site after excavating some of the soil, an artificial hill was created on one of its sides, further ensuring privacy. Not only does this make the structure secure and secluded, but it offers excellent natural insulation – a fine example of energy conservation, making the interiors warm in winter and keeping them cool in summer.

The solar passive design expands on green features with a pool that is partly filled up with rain water collected on its roof, a garden that is nourished by a grey water system and many other energy saving features. Despite its new look, it looks grand, spacious and the 40-meter driveway that connects it to the road gives it a regal appearance.
