Made by MENDOAbout the books
Who will recognize a great book better than a bookstore? A bookstore run by graphic designers. Here’s why: at MENDO we get market feedback seven days a week, we are blessed to be surrounded by a bunch of talented, inspiring people – photographers, writers and publishers – and after being a bookstore for more than 15 years, we can easily say we know what book aficionados are looking for. Don’t you agree that initiating, creating and realizing jaw-dropping books now, only comes natural?
A MENDO publication is a well-designed book with visually stunning creative content, browsed by people to be amazed and inspired. The subject-matter is one of our pre-defined curated categories, fashion, photography, interior, sport, lifestyle, food and traveling. In general, a MENDO book is a piece of furniture in itself.
Offering respite from urban living and a profound connection to nature, mountain landscapes present unique challenges that have resulted in innovative, resourceful, and beautiful residential architecture.
Featuring structures and summits in North America and Europe as well as Japan, Morocco, Argentina, Mexico, Australia, and New Zealand. The book includes houses by prominent architects well established for their designs within nature, such as Olson Kundig, Bohlin Cywinski Jackson, and Tatiana Bilbao as well as a host of lesser-known creative studios.
‘Perfect for those aspiring to a life spent in the great outdoors, but not willing to compromise on all the comforts of modern city living.’
This survey defines the homes’ one-of-a-kind architectural qualities within it’s three thematic chapters: built to look at mountains; built to become one with mountains; built to conquer mountains.
