The projects featured in this exciting new publication are as inspiring as their locations from a remote hotel in Chile to spacious residences in North America, from corporate structures in a to mountain accommodations in Europe and Australia. Despite such diversity, all the projects shown share one important theme. They have been designed to withstand various cold-climate conditions including sub-zero temperatures, frequent freeze-thaw cycles, heavy snowfalls and the long, dark days of arctic winters. Each project is accompanied by a description outlining some of its cold-climate design features, and is illustrated with full color photographs. Plans and drawings showcase innovative building interiors and exteriors, all set in stunning winter landscapes.
