The New Wood House
The first book in an attractive and informative new series that focuses on innovative architectural design and the primary materials in your home. The New Wood House features projects from prominent and emerging architects with designs both classic and cutting-edge, most of which have not been previously published. The book is heavily visual and filled with gorgeous photographs, as well as floor plans and elevations. The text is an accessible discussion of the benefits and challenges of the materials used, the design goals, and the context in which each house is built. More inspirational than how-to, THE NEW WOOD HOUSE is an indispensable and innovative guide for anyone building, renovating, or updating a home. A resources section at the back of the book describes the types of woods and finishes selected for each project.
