While it may have been several decades of strife that brought us to the brink of nuclear war, it cannot be denied that the  1950s and 1960s ushered in a whole new way of looking at underground living. From simple fallout shelters in rural backyards, to complex labrinths designed to shelter hundreds if not thousands of occupants – many underground home types we know and love today evolved from the fears of the day.
Then comes “Atomitat”.
Atomitat, by earth-sheltered home designer Jay Swayze, is a whimsical relic of the old soviet days.  A truly underground home (13 feet!) designed for a sense of surface life – just in case the surface itself was uninhabitable!
