If decor is your porn, this is your blog.
I'll take it. HERE.
I would go mad in a house like this. Nothing for miles around? Living in a box? And how would you keep all those windows clean?
It's so beautiful. At first glance it looks like the mountains. It feels like you are flying. I want to be there.
Oh, God. The first picture... I'm quivering. In a good way.
Just saw your blog listed in the Washington Post. I'll be back to visit!
Very nice - it reminds me of WG Clark's work. Inexpensive materials, very expensive workmanship.http://www.wgclark-architects.com/
Hi Elaine,thanks for sharing this one which looks absolutely devine. I read the whole article in the Times and scrolled through all pictures. I cannot even imagine how this must look like in reality. But the owner must really be a courageous woman as well. I for my part would not want to imagine what could happen if you get sick or if water supplies and energy support break for one or the other reason. But altogether it may be worth the risk. Greetings
Love love love it!
Yes. That is my dream. The only thing is, I don't know if I could actually *live* there, without city amenities. Anyone ever made the break from city to rural life and willing to share their thoughts?
I was obsessed with this, too, and I sent the link to all my architect friends! I consider myself such a furniture person (since interior architecture generally sucks, one has to make up for it with properly scaled furniture and art placement), but the architecture here is so exquisite, that you can get away with not having every furniture piece be stellar.
Now that is worth getting away to. I daydream of living in a home that doesn't need any window treatments (and boy, does that term annoy) for privacy.
Holy smokes. Yes, please.
Wow. Lovely. Great views. But it almost looks like it's verging on Unabomber hermitude. ;) I'd need my peeps!
It's look an awful lot like Clint Eastwood's house in Sun Valley...*cough*rip-off*cough*
Oooh! A little chilly, but you'd have lots of reason to stay inside and curl up with a book!
I love the angle of the top photo! Did you shoot it?
So amazing! I love that giant lamp she has on her desk in her office, very cool.
Wasn't this place amazing?
You said it sister.
This is one of those rare projects that caused me to shake my head in admiration. Not only the unique individual vision, but also just great design. I love the framing of view corridors. Very special, thanks for pointing it out. And I recently was guided to your site, by god knows whom, and I find your voice soooo refreshing amidst all the design blogs out there. Thanks again.
I absolutely adore the look of the bookshelf (if it can even be called that), but I don't know how useful it would be. Then again, going climbing every time I wanted a book might be a good way to lose a few holiday pounds. (That and the skiing/making out by the fireplace that would naturally happen all the time here.)
Kind of looks cold and lifeless. I'm not really into it.
not loving this one.
Leaves me cold.
Is that snow or cotton fields? Exquisite!
It's a landscape I'd enjoy looking at while passing through on a car or train, but I wouldn't want to be stuck with it as my sole view, day after day.
holy mother...all that beautiful scenery is to die.
The annotation to one photo caption says "Ms. Cox is certain that her (half-mile) long driveway will be impassable at some point this winter, but she is prepared to travel with snowshoes."Huh? A middle-aged+ woman "traveling" on snowshoes half-mile down the driveway--to what? It looks like there is nothing around for miles. Will she really walk in snowshoes for miles?I can appreciate the gorgeous architecture and the scenery is breathtaking, but (maybe I'm out of the loop here) how does one actually live there?Seems the ideal place for summer, fall, spring and occasional winter getaway. One gets the sense Ms. Cox has other homes in other locales. Does she actually live there year 'round?
you mean idaho has a DESERT? ...i gotta get out more. but i admire it. the distance from anything else seems symbolic for her right now...i get that. for folks who think she's truly in the middle of no-where, check one of the last photos. i saw lots of twinkling lights in the distance.every pic had me gasping. yeah, i could do that...
When I read the comments, I thought, why do people upset a fantasy by thinking practical thoughts, about how to keep a place clean or live in the middle of nowhere. What if you could build yourself an island - wouldn't you do it? But I looked at the article and the slideshow. It looks like a model of a prison in a vast mountain of salt, first of all. It does seem cold and hostile. I wonder why there's a tropical print on the twig chairs in one slide. Her office seems like an ordinary executive office. Giant table, "art," tall skinny windows. It's very beige and it would seem very lonely after a while, trying to make any use of all that space.
This is a Tom Kundig house; so if you know his other work, it all begins to make sense. He is a principal architect of Seattle firm Olson, Sundberg, Kundig, Allen and is internationally renowned for his residential designs. I think he won the Pritzker Prize last year. There are some cool videos of his work on YouTube if you want to look at amazing residential architecture.
When I saw this in the paper, all I could think was that this must be the spot where they filmed Napolean Dynamite's grandma flying off her ATV.becky
