This volume exposes the cutting edge of the architectural design of desirable residences. It explores the challenging opportunities which have resulted in some of the world's most exciting buildings. When an architect has a private client he/she is sometimes able to push the boundaries considerably further than with a public client; therefore the designs can be much more daring. Historical examples include the Eames House; Frank Lloyd Wright houses; Palladian villas and the Schroeder house. Featured examples include the work of McDonald & Kolatan, Alberto Campo Baeza, Mark Mack, Agrest & Mandelsonas, Studio Granda, Ron Arad, Nigel Coates, Ricardo Legorreta and Richard Meier. The contents of the publication include an essay which puts the nature of private client design in an historical context, as well as other influential pieces on how the reader, too, could own a designer house. Exclusive examples from across the world are featured. This issue will appeal to both architects and interior designers.
