Largest underground house in the world

 In Australia we have underground houses at  Coober Pedy, White Cliffs and Burra. But the largest of them all is in Canberra the national capital and I might add the largest underground house in the world. The photo above shows the building from the north with the old parliament house in front. It also has the largest flagpole in the southern hemisphere which is made from stainless steel.Note the earth berms to the right and left of the photo.
It is bigger than Bill gates house.If I am wrong please let me know in the comments section.
Cheers Stewart
