Dominic Bradbury

£16.95

A survey of high-design contemporary houses set in dramatic mountainous locations that fuse style with comfort

Overview

High up in the snow-covered alpine regions of the world, the whole idea of mountain living is being refreshed and reinvented…

As our cities become more concentrated, there is an increasing desire to experience nature as directly as possible, and architects are making use of new technologies and materials to look again at the tried-and-true methods, with results that range from cosy retreats to glamorous hilltop villas.

From the Highlands of Scotland to the breathtaking summits of the Alps and the Rockies, Mountain Modern is a journey to some of the most stunning homes around the world, designed for high-altitude climates and mountainous locations, fusing style with comfort in extreme weather conditions.
