Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
This high quality technical publication presents a hand-picked selection of houses from all around the world, the common feature being that they are single-family houses rather than terraced or apartment housing. The book covers a wide range of formal, structural and constructive approaches to this popular form of housing. Projects are documented with loving care and close attention to detail, with descriptions of the initial brief, challenges arising therefrom and the construction process. There are plenty of excellent photographs and a wide range of plans - floorplans, elevations, sections, constructive sections and constructive details. This detailed and heavyweight study is essential for those involved in the delivery of single-family housing.
