What Houzz contributors are saying:

One element that makes the house interesting is the use of gabions for exterior walls. Gabions are wire baskets that are filled with stones, broken concrete, and/or gravel; they are often used as retaining walls. When used in buildings, gabion walls give the impression that a building rises from the land; in the case of this Buddhist retreat, the stones filling the baskets were actually gathered from the property, combined with gravel from nearby.
2. Buddhist's Home in UtahOne of the most unique aspects of this Buddhist's home in Utah is the way the walls seem to rise up from the ground. The house seems to be made from the rock upon which it sits. This happens through construction with gabion walls — large stones are held in wire baskets.
