hobbit architecture


Whimsical hobbit house built by Stuart Grant. Located near Tomich, Scotland, he constructed his own real-life Hobbit house with a magical-looking outside and impressive interior. Built in the 1980s, the exterior of the home is completely covered in moss and has a large rounded door. Low ceilings and cozy furnishings make you feel like you’re living among the underground. Outside you can enjoy a cheery pond and greenhouse.

Assumed you were a hobbit in another life time? Enjoy saving the planet but also living comfortably? Here are Peter Vetsch’s Earth Houses in Dietikon, Switzerland. Out of the nine houses on the lot, there are between 3-7 bedrooms, a parking lot and space for gardening. Peter placed the houses under the natural hills in order to provide insulation in the winter and cool breezes in the summer. I imagine this is where the Teletubbies are hanging out right now. 

“Why Aren’t I Here?” - Rebecca 


“Hobbits are an unobtrusive but very ancient people, more numerous formerly than they are today; for they love peace and quiet and good tilled earth: a well-ordered and well-farmed countryside was their favourite haunt… They dressed in bright colours, being notably fond of yellow and green… All Hobbits had originally lived in holes in the ground… A preference for round windows, and even round doors, was the chief remaining peculiarity of hobbit-architecture.”
from Concerning Hobbits of The Lord of the Rings Prologue by J.R.R. Tolkien.
