Description

Midcentury spaces made new: A-Frame homes from rustic to ultra-modern, mountain retreats to seaside getaways.

The A-Frame home surged in popularity in the 1950s, and has captured the public’s imagination with its playfully modern, steep-sloping roofline ever since. The Modern A-Frame celebrates seventeen diverse accounts of these minimalists cabins reinvented for the twenty-first century. Nostalgic escapes, heritage homes, full-time simplicity, and artists at work categorize the A-frames whose engaging stories are shared. Whether fabricated from a 1960s kit or as a new build via retro inspiration, the variety of styles and homeowners in this photo-driven collection beautifully captures the romance of a classic structure, which beckons to travelers and homebuyers today, just as it did sixty years ago.

Perfect for the architectural enthusiast, midcentury-minded designer, or armchair traveller.
