More Mountain Modern

I bumbled into a website called nextroom Architektur out of Austria, thus adding to the ever-growing list of ways to feed my modern mountain house daydreaming and avoid doing my paying work. Nextroom was founded by Swiss architect Juerg Meister in 1996: "Architectural institutions select buildings for inclusion. Expert juries create theme-based collections. Nextroom links the data with information, illustrations and press reviews."

From nextroom, you can follow links to the website of the firms that look particularly enticing (since I'm most interested in single-family houses to see design ideas put into use, this link takes you to a list of them, but there are lists of industrial and public buildings and projects as well). Poking through all these entries and links - what a great way to spend a snowy afternoon! (photos below from K M Architektur)
