Location: Sesto, Italy
Why we like it:
Situated on a hillside in the Dolomites, the striking residence was designed to host six families on holiday. Divided into individual apartments, Dolomitenblick features an incision down the middle that defines the building while creating functional living spaces. Covered balconies catch the southern sun while also providing visitors with panoramic views. Borrowing color palettes from nearby farmhouses, the building uses materials that will change over time (including copper and larch wood), further blending the house into its country setting.
