Earth, Sky & Water | Author: Mette Lange

In a world of starchitects competing to design ever taller glass and steel megaliths, there are still some architects designing with natural materials at a human scale, for comfort, longevity and visual delight. Mette Lange is one such architect. She creates beautiful, unpretentious homes in spectacular scenery that offer visual inspiration for homebuilders and dreamers alike.

Earth, Sky and Water presents 15 projects designed by Mette across three chapters: By the Water, In the Forest and In the Countryside. First-person project texts describe Mette's unique practice of camping on-site at the start of each design process, and detail the thinking behind each house's main features. Inviting photography takes readers inside these homes and draws particular attention to the choice of materials. A collection of instantly calming houses in remote Scandinavian locations that will make you want to escape into nature.
