Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The New Asian Home affirms that we have a desire to transcend our stressful world by employing Asian design concepts to make home a peaceful sanctuary. Asian design has strong appeal for those looking for natural alternatives to Western home standards-open floor plans, exposure of structural elements, emphasis on natural forms and materials in harmony with the site, and greater transparency between indoor and outdoor space. The New Asian Home features twenty-three interesting and innovative homes, including custom-built homes, modest handcrafted structures by master craftsmen, and affordable modular homes.
