In The Hardworking House, leading domestic designer Johnny Grey continues the theme he began with his The Art of Kitchen Design - the harmonious blending of functional requirements with fine craftsmanship and humane values -- extending it to the whole house and its great rooms. He looks back into the past for solutions that worked, as well as at recent developments in Europe, the USA and Australia, showing that contemporary solutions can find roots in sources as diverse as the traditional Japanese house or a Shaker workroom, while the values of the Arts and Crafts movement can be seen to be as relevant today as a century ago.
Lavishly illustrated and beautifully produced, The Hardworking House is at once a showcase for the best in international contemporary domestic architecture and wide-ranging, thoughtful exploration of living and lifestyle on the threshold of the twenty-first century.
