Publisher Comments:

“We need more inspiration, more solutions, and a new vision for what is possible when combining living and working environments. . . . This wonderful book is the first step.”—from the foreword by Sarah Susanka

In the same format as Abrams’ successful Living Large in Small Spaces, Live/ Work is filled with innovative and inspired ideas for incorporating work into the home. The author profiles thirty live/work environments and their owners, who share solutions for everything from design problems to meeting the conflicting emotional demands of work and leisure. The profiles include houses designed from the ground up to shelter businesses; renovated lofts and recycled spaces; offices and studios cleverly tucked away in backyards or above cafés and galleries; and residences designed to be earth-friendly. Their styles range from traditional to modern, but the balance struck between life and work is completely natural throughout. This is a book about design that answers everyday needs vital to a rewarding life at home as well as at work.

Book News Annotation:

"We need...a new vision for what is possible when combining living and working environments...." writes architect/interior designer Sarah Susanka (The Not So Big House) in introduction. Through color photographs, blueprints, commentary, and lessons learned, architecture/art/design critic Dietsch (editor, Waterfront Home and Design magazine; author, Classic Modern Architecture for Dummies) provides inspiration for the trend of live/work architecture. Newly-built, "green," backyard additions, and "born-again" buildings are showcased which meet the diverse needs of artists, retailers, farmers, restauranteurs, and others don't want to compartmentalize work and homelife. Featured designers are listed. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
