Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

This truly unique compendium presents cutting-edge ideas from the world of international contemporary residential architecture. Featuring gorgeous photographs of some of the world's most innovative homes, this deluxe book also contains in-depth architectural plans that detail everything from land elevations to building materials. Concise text puts the homes into architectural context and provides further insight into their various styles—from modern to classic—and how the design teams tailor-made each home according to specific client needs.

The book is divided into four sections, featuring homes whose shapes are defined as being organic, geometric, mimetic, or a more hybrid form, which utilizes two main building materials. Stunning in its execution and chock-full of helpful tips from industry leaders, The Sourcebook of Contemporary Houses the perfect source of inspiration for homeowners and architects alike.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
It has a lot of good examples on this so common yet so unique architecturla topic which is designing houses. I loved the fact that it is divided by design styles.

The negative point is that there are some information missing. The book's cover house, as an example, only has its groundplan blueprint.

But overall, it is a good book. 4/5

I saw this book in a bookstore and immediately felt in love with it.

I do a lot of photography and recently I had the opportunity to take pictures for an architect. This book immediately caught my attention. I'm really impressed with the beauty of the houses and the quality of the pictures. I would recommend it as a reference to architects and photographers.

A huge selection of truly unique modern homes! Most homes here (if not all) are built in 2000's. This book is big! I love it!
