Cave House by Ummo Estudio

Generally speaking, living in a cave is not exactly considered luxurious. Far from it, in fact. Yet the Cuevas Del Pino House by Ummo Estudio challenges that idea.

Originally used as a shelter for livestock watchmen on the slopes of Sierra Morena, this home was rehabilitated by the Spanish architecture firm in a way that both preserved the raw tectonic nature of the place while also adding in a good deal of comfort and natural light. Walk into the home and you’ll find both the original walls of the shelter, as well as swooping heavy stone ceilings and walls. The commingling, or ‘conversation’ as the firm puts it, is intended to create a richness of both space and material. What may be most remarkable about the whole arrangement, however, is just how much natural light is able to make its way into the home. Large windows and daylights fill the area with light, giving it a decidedly brighter feel than what you’d expect from a cave. You can book a stay in the home starting at $130 a night. [Purchase]
