The Stone House: A Product of Its Surroundings

The Stone House: A Product of Its Surroundings

So much of green architecture revolves around blending a home into its natural space, making it feel as if it's a continuation of the earth below it. Now take a gander at this house in Portugal, built between four large boulders in the mountains.

This house isn't new; in fact, it's almost four decades old. But in recent years, it's gotten a lot of attention (so much so, the owner has had to install anti-theft devices, and move to find peace and quiet again).

The house made between stones is beautiful—a real testament to living with the land as opposed to living on the land. And to top off this eco-living metaphor, guess what the view holds? Wind turbines in the distance.
