Overview

The first book in an informative new design series that focuses on the primary materials in your home, The New Wood House represents a diverse sampling of the most stunning innovations in wood-based home designs. As author James Trulove writes, "More than any other building medium, wood makes an undeniable impact on our senses." The top architects whose work is featured here have taken the potential of wood in unexpected new directions while staying true to the nature of the medium. Many of the homes were built with sustainably harvested timber and reclaimed lumber, and all were designed to integrate seamlessly with the land from which the wood arose.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This is the first volume in a planned series on the primary materials of the home, which include wood, glass, and stone. Trulove (Cottages: The New Style) focuses on houses that use wood as a featured material. The homes he has selected incorporate the sentiment expressed by landscape architect Lawrence Halprin, who created a master plan for the Sea Ranch, a coastal residential community north of San Francisco for which Halprin coined the phrase "living lightly on the land." For each of the 15 architect-designed homes located on the West and East coasts, Trulove includes plans and elevations as well as numerous color photos that clearly depict how the wood has been showcased in the interiors and exteriors. Recommended for large interior design collections. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
