The idea is ok.... the implementation is something else. Kinda looks like a concrete bunker to me. i was expecting something in a mountain... this looks like something in a hill, the main point being that the side of the hill was taken out, the concrete was added then things were filled back in. Not really any different than the underground homes discussed else where.

I realize it was pretty involved to make this, but it's just beautiful and how it sets into the surroundings is cool, the views. Love the courtyard, and the round circle.
