Snow-Covered Architecture

A collection of gorgeous homes in a blanket of white

by Angelica Marino


Everyone loves a white Christmas, regardless of whether you’ll be spending the holidays in cozy fleece or Bermuda shorts. We at Archilovers believe snow looks great on any type of architecture, so we’ve compiled a list of our favorite wintry abodes to help get you in the holiday spirit. Feel free to listen to some Christmas carols as you wander through our architectural winter wonderland!



Playa ArchitectsKettukallio is located in Finland, between cliffs and a fairly steep lakeside, making it the perfect spot for admiring the surrounding nature and playing winter sports.



The huge panoramic windows in UFOgel by Peter Jungmann seamlessly connect the comfortable interior with what it perhaps the most breathtaking winter landscape one could imagine.



A sleek, minimal design style in this kitchen in efh Berchtold Termen lets the surroundings take center stage. 



This OFF GRID RETREAT in Appalachian Ohio is riddled with sustainable features to keep inhabitants warm as they gaze at the outdoors.



Located in Northeast Oregon, this Glass Farmhouse by Olson Kundig Architects is a contemporary glass box that floats atop the surrounding snow-covered wheat fields.



Stand in this glassy extension in Pavillon Roly and you’ll likely feel like you’re in a snow-globe.



The all-black dining room in CAMELOT, located on the border between France and Italy, mimics the exterior of the structure, which starkly contrasts with the surrounding blanket of white.


Wishing our readers a lovely holiday season and a snowy new year, from the entire Archilovers Editorial Office!
