“This land, it is a fantastic, natural place,” explains Klaus Mayer, when I talk to him later on the phone. “It needs structures that respond to this amazing environment, that articulate this area. That doesn’t exist here yet—and that is the great challenge for us to work on.”

canadian photographer kamil bialous shares some of the images he took of our house for a musher that he shot for dwell last fall.

“A house for a musher; Martin Buser and Kathy Chapoton residence photographed for Dwell. A modern log cabin, with perfect views of golden valleys and distant mountains, and finished in black charred cedar, sits atop one of the highest hills around. Overlooking a meadow, lake, and Martin’s dog kennels, the land changes with the light and seasons, the windows becoming picture frames to the scenery.

But the house is not a fortress – designed by architects Mayer Sattler-Smith, its concept allows an indoor/outdoors balance, because you don’t just look at the landscape, you live with it. Like living in a viewmaster.
