Living Below Ground – Billionaire Style (Iceberg Basements)


Over in London, UK there is a trend to expand mansions below ground since there is such a scarcity of land to expand out and bylaws against building up. This blew my mind. Does one really need that much space? And then I had so many questions. What about the light, air circulation?

What do you think? Here I am just happy to have natural light throughout the day . . . but I guess a swimming pool would be pretty nice.

P.S. I’ll try and find some images of these below-ground mansions.

The above image is from a 2012 Guardian article on “Billionaires’ Basements,” written by Oliver Wainwright.
