Completed just a few years ago in 2009 is the amazing Villa Vals by SeARCH and CMA. The concept behind the home was to build something that would not disturb the surrounding nature, a concept similar to the Productoria built hillside residence in Mexico.
Seeing that the home is built into a slanted hillside, the only way to gain access is the nearby wooden Graubünder shed, which connects to a tunnel running right through the mountainside. This place is currently available as a vacation destination, and can be rented for anywhere from €1750 to €3450 per week.
