New Arts & Crafts HousesBook - 2005 | 1st ed.
The Arts & Crafts movement that burgeoned at the beginning of the 20th century is being revived and incorporated into residential architecture, and the finest of these homes are presented in New Arts & Crafts Houses.
Whether reflecting the precedents of such diverse turn-of-the-century architects as Gustav Stickley and the Greene Bros. in the United States or William Morris and C.F. Voysey in England, the new Arts & Crafts houses incorporate similar notions of harmony, individualism, cohesive d#65533;cor, and simplicity of style that have strong appeal to today's architects and homeowners. The 20 houses in this book illustrate, through full-color photography and detailed floor and site plans, the range of new Arts & Crafts architecture, from contemporary bungalow vacation homes to larger residences.
Readers interested in Arts & Crafts design will discover why the styles and features of this early 20th century artistic and philosophical movement are timeless -- and how today's architects and designers are using them to enhance contemporary residences.
