The Hobbits of the Shire had charming homes. They were small, to match their inhabitants’ dimensions, with round doors and windows, as well as round roofs. They were environmentally-friendly, often built partially underground with grass on top. Kuriositas puts forth the theory that the Hobbits all left the Shire at some point and settled elsewhere around the world, recreating their traditional architecture.

To be sure, many of these homes predate Tolkien’s saga, and are presumed to be the inspiration for Hobbit houses. Others are relatively new, inspired by The Lord of the Rings. See a variety of Hobbit houses that stand in countries far and wide at Kuriositas.
