Product Description:
Clearly written and profusely illustrated, Patterns of Home brings the timeless lessons of residential design to homeowners who seek inspiration and direction in the design or remodel of their homes. Patterns of Home promises to become the “design bible” for homeowners and architects. The 10 patterns described in the book — among them, “capturing light” and “the flow through rooms” — are drawn from hundreds of principles and presented with clarity by the authors, renowned architects who have designed homes together for more than 30 years. Insightful tours of 33 homes also bring the essential design concepts to life. This book will jump-start the design process and make the difference between a home that satisfies material requirements — and one that meets the personal needs of a home. “Patterns of Home gives us the tools to make our houses truly wonderful places to live.” — Sarah Susanka
