Not everyone wants to live at sea level. Not everyone wants to live in a rustic hideout, either. Mountain Modern: Contemporary Homes in High Places celebrates the art of bringing updated architecture to the hilltops of the world. Spanning the globe from California to the Alps, the book is broken into three sections based on the type of house (cabin, chalet, and villa) and includes text explaining the dwelling, as well as photos showing off the architecture, interior design, and setting. With over 400 photos in total, there's more than enough material to inspire your next build — or just your next vacation.
