Mountain Modern Architecture

7 Ways to Define the Trend by Jae Curtis | Once upon a time, building a home in the mountains meant something along the lines of bear rugs and deer heads. Sure, it was fine for a weekend getaway, but rustic homes didn’t always feel livable. The knickknacks and kitschy design can easily turn a mountain home into a caricature of itself. What seems like a fun space for a weekend can feel too heavy and cluttered for real-life living.

That’s why the mountain modern trend is so appealing. Architecture that pays homage to mountain life without the heavy hand makes these homes more livable. Without the clutter and kitsch, mountain living becomes a lot more comfortable. What’s more, this design style respects the land and makes your dreams of mountain life even more attainable. Check out some of the most common aspects of mountain modern design and decide if it’s right for you. Check out the full article on freshhome here. Cheers!

Make Your Modern | Home Story 08

COZY IN COR-TEN | Architects Maria Rusafova and Jakub Markulis embarked on their home building adventure with a small amount of savings and a lot of enthusiasm. They had no bank loan, so construction took place slowly, stretching out over the course of a decade. Remaining true to their beliefs, they designs a small, efficient, light-filled home in a secluded West Asheville locale.

COR-TEN steel veneer panels in a rich sable patina blend artfully with the lush greens and brown of the surrounding forest, with large windows carefully position to frame a view of the urban forest. The home looks and feels like a tree house.

The open concept floor plan suits their lifestyle perfectly. Family members spend most of their time in front of the 17-foot high focal window, playing games, doing homework, or relaxing in one of the bean bag chairs where they can observe nature’s ever-changing performances on the wooded stage. Maria explains that there aren’t many opportunities to “escape” from one another, but that’s how they like it.

For more stories you can find our book, Make Your Modern in the Mountains, at Atomic Design and Furnishings. And soon at Malaprops. Have a beautiful Sunday. Cheers!
