House in Selva di Val Gardena by Rudolf Perathoner

The skiing season might be over, but that doesn't stop us from dreaming about the perfect mountain escape, especially if the chalet in question is as stylish as this.

Designed by local architect Rudolf Perathoner, this remarkable chalet is located in the picturesque village of Selva di Val Gardena at the foot of the Dolomites.  The four-storey building takes on a sleek, almost sculptural presence, with the dramatic facets of the  irregular facade offering a real sense of dynamism.  The steep pitched roof and use of wood and stones is a nod to the local vernacular and helps the chalet to fit into the landscape and stand out at the same time.  The living spaces inside benefit from vast windows and a minimalist contemporary design scheme, all the better for putting the emphasis on the stunning views outside.

Sculptural Style

Product Inspiration

Sculptural shapes and natural materials with a sleek finish is a great combination for a contemporary chalet inspired design scheme.  Try the Fan table from Desalto with the Altay armchair from Coedition and the Kuskoa barstool from Alki.

A combination of natural, understated suspension lights such as the Spiro from LZF with a warm and sculptural table light, such as the Cave from Moustache or the Bowl from New Works would look great in this chalet.

For accessories what about a selection of the Funny Farm animals from LZF or the rustic yet contemporary Smokestack fireplace from Frederik Roije?  The wood inlay iPhone covers from Wood'd would also fit the vibe.

Shutter House by State of Kin

Japanese zen style goes far beyond minimalist white spaces. It is about thoughtful spaces which encourage the contemplation of light, colours, textures and shapes - the building blocks of nature and beauty. The Shutter House in Perth is a great example.

Terrazzo Things from Lick My Brick

There was a time when the use of marble was largely restricted to floors, posh kitchen counters and grave statutes. And then, at some point around the mid-noughties, marble was everywhere. Could the same be happening to terrazzo?
