Founded by writer and thinker Alain de Botton, Living Architecture is a stunning collection of modern houses available for holidays or weekends away in the UK. Each house is individual and designed by world renowned Architects including Peter Zumthor and NORD, offering the public a chance to experience contemporary architecture within its environment firsthand.

Books cost little to write and can reach a wide audience. Buildings cost lots and reach few — and yet in some ways architecture has the advantage. The impact is deep rather than thin.” — Alain de Botton via Wired.
