Domestic Bliss

Innovative, intimate architecture from China to Chile
Designing private residences has its own very special challenges and nuances for the architect. The scale may be more modest than public projects, the technical fittings less complex than an industrial site, but the preferences, requirements, and vision of particular personalities becomes priority. The delicate task is to translate all the emotive associations and practical requirements of “home” into a workable, constructed reality.

This publication rounds up 100 of the world’s most interesting and pioneering homes designed in the past two decades, featuring a host of talents both new and established, including John Pawson,Shigeru Ban, Tadao Ando, Zaha Hadid, Herzog & de Meuron, Daniel Libeskind, Alvaro Siza, and Peter Zumthor. Accommodating daily routines of eating, sleeping, and shelter, as well as offering the space for personal experience and relationships, this is architecture at its most elementary and its most intimate.

En mi trabajo es fundamental la imagen de arquitectura contemporánea. Tener en mi biblioteca este volumen con obras magníficas y fotografías espectaculares a gran tamaño lo hacen ideal para mi labor profesional.

A Masterpiece

Dennis, October 29, 2021
Ein Meisterwerk, welches das Schaffen der kreativen Think out of Box Meister der Zeit eindrucksvoll vor Augen führt.


Esther, October 27, 2021
Ein aufregender überblick über zeitgemäße Architektur rund um die Welt. Zum Verstehen, Träumen, Bewundern und manchmal auch zum Staunen und Schmunzeln. Am Anfang blättert man es unersättlich durch, im weiteren Verlauf wird es etwas schal, weil viele Fotografiersituationen unpersönlich und offensichtlich vor dem Einzug der Bewohner sind. Dafür kann das Buch nichts - aber am tollsten sind die Bilder, welche diese Häuser im Zustand der tatsächlichen Benutzung zeigen.
