"Asked to design a fitting repository for a client’s valuable collection of J.R.R. Tolkien manuscripts and artifacts, architect Peter Archer went to the source—the fantasy novels that describe the abodes of the diminutive Hobbits.

“I came back my client and said, ‘I’m not going to make this look like Hollywood,’” Archer recalled, choosing to focus instead on a finely-crafted structure embodying a sense of history and tradition."

This is an interesting idea, but a bit to much like the film's for my liking, what do you think?

Hrmm... that looks more like a cottage than a hobbit hole. Though, that may not be what they were going for in this case. It certainly looks like something that belongs in Hobbiton though. I'm not sure you could pull something like that off without it resembling something in Jackon's movie version of Hobbiton -- since he had many different types of structures with different architectural designs in stone and wood that can be comparable.

I agree that it does not look like a hobbit hole, but it really is very nice! The workmanship is exceptional. Very nice design!

Hmm, maybe it's a wing of Brandy Hall--Merry's library and study where he compiles his research on Pipe-weed.

I would love an office like that.

Not to say it doesn't look cool or is very nice; but, that is a cottage with a round door and windows.
