A photographic study of more than twenty houses and the mountain landscapes, from alpine forests to urban peaks, that embrace them.
Spanning continents and climates, the twenty homes presented in interior designer Nina Freudenberger’s latest book challenge and expand the idea of what a mountain house might be. Artist retreats in Morocco’s High Atlas and the snowy folds of the Engadine Valley in Switzerland speak to the long tradition of mountains spaces for contemplation and creation, while modernist masterworks in Cape Town and Rio de Janeiro expand the traditional image of log cabins and rustic chalets.
Depicted in over 200 images, these houses include brutalist lodges, clapboard cottages, and minimalist prisms set down among some of the world’s most dramatic landscapes. In their spectacular diversity, they express the radical ingenuity and stunning creativity that the mountains have always inspired.
