Beyond the log cabin: new chalet living
Forget about Swiss chalets. Modern mountain living is more Bond lair than cuckoo clock

From the article:

Away from the crowds in a virgin area of forest, architect Florian Busch has built an extraordinary geometric house with a central spine and 10 “arms” capped by a window. It was built for a Malaysian couple, their grown-up children and a large extended family, and the brief was not for a house but for time in the forest. “The windows focus you in different directions, and the family can come together, but also enjoy privacy in the wings,” Busch explains. “We chose its location, on the edge of a clearing, carefully. There are trees on the site and that is one of the reasons the house is branching – it is finding its way through the woodland.”
