What brings a home to life? This is the underlying quest behind each of the spectacular houses showcased in this colourful volume, illustrated with hundreds of photographs and floor plans, with commentary by the contributing architects. This book takes us behind the facades and into the minds of the masters behind the design of each house. Undeniably contemporary and forward thinking in planning and execution, these houses were chosen for their ability to inspire, to break away from the norm.
