Mountain House: Studies in Elevated Design
A stunning photographic collection of more than twenty mountain houses around the world that incorporate the surrounding ranges and vistas into their designs, from the author of Surf Shack and Bibliostyle.
From Morocco to Patagonia and France to Korea, interior designer Nina Freudenberger presents some of the most spectacular and adventurous homes hidden in mountainous regions around the world, including modern lodges, rustic hideaways, minimalist abodes, hillside chalets, and more. With over 200 striking images of these private beautiful homes and their surrounding landscape, you can explore mountain living at its best in every season.
Among the twenty-one homes featured in this book, you'll find a villa nestled in Switzerland's Engadin Valley; a former U.S. Forest Service cabin converted to a family getaway in California's San Gabriel Mountains; a modern home built out of volcanic stone and concrete outside of Mexico City; and a historic stone chalet in Meribel, France.
With holistically designed interiors that keep the focus on the environment just outside the window, these homes epitomize the tranquility we seek in the wilderness and the design ingenuity and courageousness that mountain life inspires.
