Though the houses in Rizzoli's latest architecture tome are not modest, they're homes for lovers of architecture and nature. Above: The Pierre house by Seattle architect Tom Kundig has a sweeping view of the Puget Sound in Washington's San Juan Islands. Above: The architect had the site excavated so the house would sit among the rocks rather than perched atop them. Above: The retreat comprises three buildings by Fearon Hay Architects on New Zealand's Waiheke Island: one for bedrooms, one for working, and one for living and dining, shown here. Above: No space is wasted on hallways: the bedrooms are accessed directly from the outdoors. Above: A grove of protected New Zealand pohutukawa trees gave Herbst Architects a challenge to nestle a house within. Above: The double-height great room is covered in glass, lending occupants the feeling of residing inside the forest. Above:  Retreat: The Modern House in Nature  by Ron Broadhurst is $35.83 on Amazon.
