Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Arts & Crafts movement that burgeoned at the beginning of the 20th century is being revived and incorporated into residential architecture, and the finest of these homes are presented in New Arts & Crafts Houses.

Whether reflecting the precedents of such diverse turn-of-the-century architects as Gustav Stickley and the Greene Bros. in the United States or William Morris and C.F. Voysey in England, the new Arts & Crafts houses incorporate similar notions of harmony, individualism, cohesive décor, and simplicity of style that have strong appeal to today's architects and homeowners. The 20 houses in this book illustrate, through full-color photography and detailed floor and site plans, the range of new Arts & Crafts architecture, from contemporary bungalow vacation homes to larger residences.

Readers interested in Arts & Crafts design will discover why the styles and features of this early 20th century artistic and philosophical movement are timeless — and how today's architects and designers are using them to enhance contemporary residences.
