Description


A breathtaking survey of contemporary homes, each with a deep connection to the landscapes and vistas of the mountains

Offering respite from urban living and a profound connection to nature, mountain landscapes present unique challenges that have resulted in innovative, resourceful, and beautiful residential architecture.

The 250 color illustrations in Living in the Mountains showcase the finest examples of architect-designed homes, whether furnished with impressive views, offering protection from harsh environments, or simply reveling in their extraordinary altitude. Each featured home includes an informative, descriptive caption.

Enjoy this definitive global tour, featuring structures and summits in North America and Europe as well as Japan, Morocco, Argentina, Mexico, Australia, and New Zealand. The book includes houses by prominent architects well established for their designs within nature, such as Olson Kundig, Bohlin Cywinski Jackson, and Tatiana Bilbao as well as a host of lesser-known creative studios.

This survey defines the homes' one-of-a-kind architectural qualities within it's three thematic chapters: built to look at mountains; built to become one with mountains; built to conquer mountains.

Embark upon an architectural adventure with Living in the Mountains, Phaidon's latest addition to the bestselling 'Inspired Living' series. This breathtaking series explores how the design of contemporary living spaces connects their inhabitants to the natural environments of forests, deserts, water, and now, mountains.

Praise For…


"Living In The Mountains, the lavishly-illustrated architecture book released tomorrow by Phaidon, offers plenty in the way of escapist bucolic fantasy, it also features some of the most luxurious and innovative mountain houses ever built-perfect for those aspiring to a life spent in the great outdoors, but not willing to compromise on all the comforts of modern city living." —Vogue

"Against the backdrop of a worsening environmental crisis, when there is a clear need to reconsider our relationship with the planet, how can we use mountain architecture as a test bed, applying its ideas at ground level? ...adventurous architecture will be essential in the coming years as we face a whole different sort of precipice. The heartening news is that, on the evidence of these innovative design projects, humanity has a knack for finding a foothold in even the most challenging and remote conditions." —Aesthetica Magazine

"Offers perfect escapism." —Metro

"A handsome coffee-table showcase of the worldâ??s best-looking high-altitude homes." —Sheerluxe MAN

"The appeal of life at high altitude is clear." —ELLE Decoration
