Editorial Reviews


“While the urge to head for the hills goes way back, when it comes to high-altitude dwellings, contemporary designers are looking forward, as illustrated by the bright, clean-lined homes in Mountain Modern.
- Wall Street Journal

Though we rarely categorize designs by their altitude, here it makes for an interesting collection.

- Interior Design

“Examines the current trends and challenges of creating newly constructed homes in mountains....A detailed look at contemporary domestic architecture.”
- Library Journal

“Packed with photos of sleek homes high in the mountains around the world.”
- Country's Best Cabins

“The interiors are filled with expensive and tasteful contemporary artwork, yet the personal touch clearly shows that these are homes.”
- Portland Book Review

“Capture[s] cabins, chalets, and villas, all built along breathtaking perches.”
- Architectural Digest
