I'd expect you also have these in the US, rather than the smallish real quonset huts
The other end of the scale is homeless people living in culverts.

The local equivalent, ribless single-skin construction, does have more surface area. The curved inner face can promote air circulation if the inner walls are copacetic. A double-envelope passive house is certainly possible.

Spray-on cork paint can insulate and deaden the sound of rainfall. Inside, outside or both.

You might consider a 120 degree arc oriented East-West, on the ground to the North and raised eight feet to the South with a Solar wall. as the basis of an Earthship. Six inch air gap to the North and an atrium/gallery on the South
