Unique architectural constructions around the world (P.25) - Robo-Hobbit home (Czech Republic) : Unique underground house that can move up and down the ground with controls


(WorldKings.org) Built by builder Bohumil Lhota, this Roundabout House aka Robo-Hobbit home is located in Velke Hamry, Prague, Czech Republic. The uniquely constructed underground home is completely functional and cool. The Hobbit home completed in 2002, can move up and down from the ground on a flick of a switch and can also be rotated around manually to always face the sun. The house has a swimming pool and is perhaps one of the finest Hobbit homes you’ll see.

Imagine a cross between a Hobbit's home and a building from Star Wars and it might just look something like this. Bohumil Lhota, a builder from the Czech Republic, has spent years constructing his unique abode, which is as functional as it is cool.

He came up with the idea in 1981 and finally brought it to reality in 2002, building it in the ground to benefit from the cooler temperatures.

Dubbed by some as the 'Robo-Hobbit' home, it is able to move up and down from the ground and rotate on its sides so he can always be in the sun.

It can rise like a periscope at the flick of a switch or he can move the upper part manually by pushing it around its central axis.

Lhota built the house in Velke Hamry, near the town of Jablonec nad Nisou, 100km (62 miles) north-east from Prague mainly because he got bored of working on normal ones. And it even has a swimming pool for the times when he needs to cool off after catching a few too many rays.
