Product description

Experience the serene charm of remote Scandinavian retreats designed to ignite your imagination for the perfect getaway.

While many architects race to create towering glass and steel giants, some still focus on crafting with natural materials at a human scale, prioritising comfort, durability, and aesthetic pleasure. Mette Lange is one such visionary. Her beautiful, unpretentious homes nestled in breathtaking landscapes provide endless inspiration for homebuilders and dreamers alike.

"Earth, Sky & Water" showcases fifteen of Lange's stunning houses, organised into three sections: "By the Water," "In the Forest," and "In the Countryside." The book features first-person narratives detailing Lange’s unique approach of camping on-site at the beginning of each project, offering insights into the design and materials used in each home. Captivating photography immerses readers in the serene interiors and highlights the thoughtful material choices.

Lange's commitment to social responsibility extends beyond Scandinavia. She has designed schools for the children of migrant workers in India, where she spends part of each year. These humanitarian projects, featured alongside her personal home in India, influence her architectural practice back in Denmark.

By keeping her studio small, Lange ensures her full involvement in every project. This book is not only a visual celebration of minimalist Scandinavian summerhouses but also a guide for aspiring architects seeking to create their own sustainable practices. Renowned architecture writer Kenneth Frampton, a dedicated admirer of Lange's work, contributes the foreword.
