Terra Homage™ earth bermed and earth sheltered home plan designs seek to blend art, nature, the site, energy use, and the needs of the persons in a functional yet esthetically please whole. There exists no finer manner to tie the human built environment to the nature of the land. The Earth in turn, provides a buffer to the extremes in weather, while tying us to the natural landscape. The earth bermed designs may be embraced by soil on the North side of the home, (in the northern hemisphere), for protection, while the roof and south are open to the suns natural warmth to heat the home via radiation. Earth sheltered home plans have completely blanketed northern walls and the roof buried in many feet of soil. The entire known history of human kind has examples of incorporating earth tempered designs in built structures. Modern masters of Earth berming and earth sheltered design, Frank Lloyd Wright and Malcom Wells created homes of lasting beauty and function.
The evolution and future of earth sheltered home design is here for you now with Terra Homage™ design. Contact us today to begin your creative journey.
