Spanish architectural firm Ensamble Studio has designed “la Trufa” (the Truffle) in collaboration with Ricardo Sanz and Javier Cuesta.
This 270-square-foot one-room dwelling is located in Costa de Morte, in the north of Spain.
to build the Truffle, contractors dug a large hole, compacted the excavated soil around the cavity to form a rough retaining wall, stacked hay bales inside, and poured concrete over them.
Completed in 2008, the Hemeroscopium House is like no other house.
Located in Madrid and designed by Ensamble Studio, the 4,300 square-foot residence is an impressive combination of heavy infrastructural pieces.
The entire structure took the studio a year to engineer but only a week to build. Check out the video below to see how.
