An awe-inspiring collection of contemporary homes designed to foster a connection with the essential elements of landscape

Living in Nature showcases a selection of architect-designed houses that have something fundamental in common: a special relationship with the natural world. Each of the book’s 50 homes is carefully chosen for its stunning location, whether cocooned within the earth itself or soaring high amongst treetops, surrounded by cooling waters, or resisting the desert heat. With a wealth of photographs showcasing each house inside and out, Living in Nature offers inspiration – and tranquillity. Organized into four chapters – Air, Earth, Fire, and Water – to reflect the uniquely elemental characteristics of each home, this beautiful book includes houses by Felipe Assadi, Olson Kundig, and Studio MK27 as well as a host of lesser-known creative studios. With exterior and interior photography highlighting such sumptuous design features as treetop terraces, cosy fireplaces, crystal-clear pools, and magnificent views, Living in Nature gives the reader a world tour of breathtaking landscapes in North America, Europe, Australia, Brazil, Japan, Mexico, South Africa, and New Zealand and also features the latest developments in both style and materials, making it the perfect gift for both architects and archi-fans.
