Review

"What distinguishes [True Life ] and makes it rise high above shelter-magazine fare, besides the beauty and creativity of the architecture, is the way it's structured: not project by project but by the thing that propels residential architecture and design, or should- the way people actually live." -- The Wall Street Journal, December 6, 2010

"True Life: Steven Harris Architects is organized around daily routines (Dine, Sleep, Lounge, etc.)- fitting for a firm devoted to creating effortlessly functional spaces. Spanning 25 years, the projects range from crisp modern to rustic to coolly traditional." --ELLE DECOR, December 2010

"This weighty, satisfying look at the New York firm's quarter century is comfort food for garden-hungry readers." --Garden Design, March 2011

This book is a masterpiece that belongs in every library of residential design volumes or prominently displayed on a coffee table. Steven Harris Architects has a true gift for creating structures and spaces that are both beautiful and function flawlessly on a day-to-day basis. Steven is a true innovator with the keenest eye around. To live in a Steven Harris residence, is to exist within an artistic creation that conveys beauty and order - but which is also very enjoyable and livable. The book is beautifully photographed and really captures the essence of their work. Buy this book!

What a disappointment. Incredibly thin on text! No project information at all. Some beautiful photos, but many so painfully large that I had to step back to allow my eyes time to refocus. Sadly, it will not find a permanent home in my library.

Filled with big beautiful images and luscious photography, this book is truly stunning. I found the organization to be fresh and exciting, and was impressed to see such an intriguing range of styles and moods. This would be the perfect book for anyone looking for inspiration for their next space, or for anyone who loves to get lost in gorgeous photos of amazing spaces. So glad I purchased this book - it is worth every penny!
