New with a view… Craving a break from your screens? Here’s our pick of seven new gems to widen your horizons! Sit back and take it all in, or wander gently into the landscape… be it city, mountains or sea.
Bolton Residence Quebec, Canada
Living on the edge… This gorgeous cantilevered home floats among the treetops in Quebec’s Eastern Townships, creating a lovely sense of lightness. Leave it to Montreal-based architectural firm Nature Humaine to turn the challenge of building on a narrow, rugged terrain into an emotional interaction with nature.
The Kumaon Kasar Devi, India
Lunch with a side of clouds… This beautifully artisanal luxury hotel floats over breathtaking views in the sacred Nanda Devi Range in India. Lovers of architecture will revel in its sensible play of geometry typical of iconic Sri Lankan architect Geoffrey Bawa’s Tropical Modernism.
Villa Kapari Milos, Greece
Nothing a sunset can’t fix…take a seat on a natural balcony facing Milos Bay and the endless blue Aegean. This contemporary eco-lodge was modelled after traditional fishermen’s houses, or syrmatas, that open up enthusiastically to the air and sunshine.
Karashka Selishte, Bulgaria
High-altitude greens… This delicately restored house from 1921 is perched at an altitude of 500m, offering majestic views of the Stara Planina mountain range in Central Bulgaria. Discover the local culture through the artisanal pottery and folkloric textiles that dress the interiors.
Casa Luca Andalusia, Spain
Swim in the scenery… Slow down and connect with nature in this 100-year-old Andalusian 4-bedroom cortijo in the Sierra Nevada. The pool is raised to give you the best views of the surrounding mountains, and is filled with water from the snow caps in spring.
Villa Elies Milos, Greece
You, me, and the sea… This one-bedroom villa that blends perfectly into the Cycladic cliffs is an indulgent return to the essential. The quiet Grecian sun, a landscape that breathes, and space enough for you and your favorite person in the world.
Lew House Los Angeles, California
The other sunset… and just as good! This masterpiece with its magnificent views above the fabled Sunset Plaza was designed in 1958 by Richard Neutra, the father of mid-century modern himself. Spread over three levels, its multiple balconies offer a delicious experience of L.A.’s shimmering skyline.
