Kevin McCloud's Principles of Home Summary


Kevin McCloud's Principles of Home: Making a Place to Live by Kevin McCloud

New, practical paperback edition of the landmark design manifesto from the UK's favourite design guru.

In this inspirational yet also practical paperback Kevin explores all areas of domestic living, from materialism to sustainability, craftsmanship to comfort. Kevin's beautifully written text brings insight and understanding to enjoying life in the 21st century, but crucially he offers detailed, helpful and incisive advice on design, construction and style.

Kevin addresses very real and solvable domestic issues: What is the perfect kitchen layout? How to create a feeling of space in traditionally sized rooms? How to create an extension that works? How best to choose colour for function? What to use for insulation? How to shop for second hand? And how best to manage home waste and recycling?

An inspiring but always usable book from the foremost voice in modern architectural design.
