Overview

Within the pages of this striking book, readers will find 20 of the most significant new homes designed by Bassenian/Lagoni Architects of Newport Beach, California, one of this country’s most innovative and acclaimed architectural firms. Inspired by the architecture of Southern Europe, yet totally new, these graceful, time-tempered homes display contemporary floor planning, the finest amenities and state-of-the art technology.

Built in the canyons and along the coasts of California, as well as in the deserts of Nevada, these homes echo the forms, textures and motifs of structures found in the hill towns of Tuscany and the plains of Andalusia. Among many remarkable examples in this collection, readers will discover: Cortile at The Bridges -- three rugged yet refined Tuscan and Andalusian walled villas set in the rolling hills of Rancho Santa Fe; Sycamores at Shady Canyon -- a trio of hand-crafted and tiled Spanish/Andalusian homes, complete with water features and interior courtyards, built in an upscale area of Irvine; and The Ultimate Family Home, a versatile family-recreation Spanish hacienda, designed around a marvelous great room and kitchen, erected in a desert enclave outside of Las Vegas.

Filled with beautiful color photography and well-written narrative, this book takes readers on an unforgettable tour of the interior and exterior of each of these homes. Large, colored site maps and floors plans with furniture placement allow the user to figuratively "walk through" each dwelling, enjoying the sweep and flow of each home and discovering amazing spaces and hidden treasures around every corner.

A worthy successor to the firm’s popular first book, Pure California, Tuscan and Andalusian Reflections is a stunning collection of photographs, floor plans, information and inspiration. For consumers, this book will serve as an invaluable resource of ideas for design, exterior surfaces, interior treatments, furnishings and landscaping created in the Old World style, yet with a California twist. For professionals and students, this text will provide examples of innovative floor planning, adept use of forms and materials, and execution of a comprehensive design strategy that has become the hallmark of this highly creative and award-winning architectural firm.

    A Must Have...Bridging the gap between old world artistry and the demands of todays living.

    The scale, balance, harmony, function, and overall presentation represented in this body of work by Bassenian / Lagoni represents the endless talents of this successful team. I am truly intriqued by their ablity to always capture the uniqueness and beauty that every one of their homes embody.
