What elevates a house to best-of-class status? Find out in this insider's look at more than fifty award-winning homes designed by nearly three dozen A plus American architects. Regardless of their size or design style, the best new and remodeled homes share common traits. They deliver eminently livable space that can accommodate nearly any lifestyle event. They respect and relate to the natural environment. They take on the personalities of their owners. And they are works of art that no one will ever want to tear down--the ultimate test of sustainability. Comprehensive in scope, this book profiles a wide variety of extraordinary homes--from urban infill to custom homes, suburban remodels, seaside cottages, and subdivision housing. It distills their broad patterns and refined details into practical lessons with endless applications, making it an inspirational guide for designers, builders, and anyone planning their own dream home.
