    Default In Italy, Perched in the Alps


    Dino Fracchia for The New York Times
    This three-story mountainside house with views of the Alps was built by Michael Pirpamer and his family, and designed by his sister Rita Pirpamer, an architect in Vienna, for around 750,000 euros, or about $990,000.

    their sofa looks so huge and comfy.
    nice views. the house is nice but not amazing and i'm not a fan of much of the interior (save the aforementioned giant sofa) and i really despise the orange walls and ceiling. orange should really only ever be used in very small touches, and never on walls.

    I hate it and it is a heinous stain on the landscape and hopefully an avalanche or a giant lightning strike, etc. will take care of it(being unoccupied at the time of course).

    ITA. That house is just not suited to its surroundings.
