Lovely peace of architecture I love the use of wood as always.

This one is very pleasant, I love the colors surrounding the yard, the lilac/lavender color combined with the blue frames (?) around the glass.

yes the house posted by Thatoneguy is beautiful. I think it's quite famous, and I definitely can see why.
@Architecturelover: I should have mentioned that it seems that all Avoriaz was built in that (quite unique I think) style.
A strange and fascinating place.

Avoriaz is quite surnatural when you ski through. It has a wonderful use of material, while accepting the scale of mass tourism (they could have cover the whole area with houese as if it was a "traditionnal" village, I'm thinking about Verbier for example)

I like how the wood shingles and siding have aged. A mix of red and silver.

Miller House, Malibu, CA, USA (1973)

I particularly like the pickled-wood siding, makes it look very beachy.

Crane House, La Jolla, CA, USA (1964)
Architect: Loch Crane





























Needs a renovation, sure, but it should be done in a way that maintains the time capsule look of the house.

beautiful but I can't imagine how drafty and cold it must get in the winter.

I think it was renovated when they built the extension. Compared to the old photo, you can see some differences in the glass curtain wall. If they replaced it with double or triple insulated glass the cold shouldn't be a big problem.
