Portrait of Mary Ore

Los Angeles–based writer and editor Mary Ore wrote about a small, 17th-century Alpine house in Switzerland renovated by architect Jonathan Tuckey. “It was interesting how Jonathan preserved the original flow of his house, where some rooms open straight onto one another, doubling as hallways,” she says. “He has thought deeply about how privacy may be overrated in our time, but he has also made sure to have doors to close or curtains to pull across when privacy is craved.”

Describe the tiniest space you ever inhabited. “When I was an au pair in Paris, I lived in atiny maid’s room on the top floor of a 19th-century building. There was only room for a bed,a desk, and a sink.”
