The house’s dramatic form, with a pointed balcony and overhangs, was inspired by the image of birds taking flight.
Stunning mountain views frame an Anselm Kiefer sculpture in the entrance gallery of the retreat architect Peter Marino designed for himself and his wife, Jane Trapnell Marino; the paintings are also by Kiefer. A Han-dynasty terra-cotta horse tops an antique Japanese tansu.
More Anselm Kiefer paintings preside over the living room, where a quartet of Marino-designed Poltrona Frau armchairs in leather and pony skin is joined by a stool covered in Icelandic sheep fur; the gilded-copper tabletop sculpture is by Hervé Wahlen, the carpet was custom made, and the floor planks are reclaimed teak.
A Jean-Michel Frank armchair is placed by the door to the balcony.
