Hideaways is a book for those dreaming of a weekend living in a small cabin, tiny shed or tree house, making an idyllic escape from the everyday world. A great variety of colorful buildings, in highly original designs and in styles ranging from ultra-modern to found objects, are pictured and described in this work.
Written by French architectural journalist Sonia Faure, many of the references and photographs are European, with many images from areas along the Mediterranean coast. Many of the structures described are stunning in their complexity, beauty and natural setting. Page through Hideaways as an escape to other worlds, or as inspiration for your own exotic abode — a home away from home.
