The New Bungalow

( 2 )

Overview

The Arts & Crafts bungalow has been reborn, in as rich and full an array of iterations as it was in its heyday — from tight clusters of similar inexpensive housing opportunities to the grand, and arguably borderline, bungalow scale of the "ultimate bungalows" of the 1910s. The New Bungalow is a celebration of contemporary interpretations of this classic house style — an art form that symbolizes the best of the good life.

Overview

The Arts & Crafts bungalow has been reborn, in as rich and full an array of iterations as it was in its heyday — from tight clusters of similar inexpensive housing opportunities to the grand, and arguably borderline, bungalow scale of the "ultimate bungalows" of the 1910s. The New Bungalow is a celebration of contemporary interpretations of this classic house style — an art form that symbolizes the best of the good life. It offers an alternative solution to the tract development filled with homes appliquéd with various random trim details and contrived architectural components. It is a guide to creating a home that has a true, honest expression of style. Given their simple lines, spacious and open floor plans, natural tones, and colors, it is no mystery why new bungalow developments are gaining popularity.

Read an Excerpt

Introduction

For three decades, Gibbs Smith, Publisher, has been exploring the works of Greene & Greene, Bernard Maybeck, and Frank Lloyd Wright. But the truth is that very few of us can own a masterpiece like the Greenes' ultimate bungalow, or a house of the quality of Wright—but we can afford a home in a style that moves beyond nationwide suburban and tract homes and condominium complexes that all look the same. Where can the sameness end and individual expression begin? It begins with The New Bungalow.
