Описание: The bungalow as we know it was created when British colonial administrators adapted a classic style of Indian architecture to build their summer retreats: All the typical rooms of a house were organized on one floor around a central parlor. Bungalows today are single- or one-anda- half-stories buildings combining the ingenious spatial solutions of apartment floor plans with the autonomy of detached single-family houses. And they are back in vogue again not only among homebuyers because they are highly functional, eco-friendly and easily accessible, which also makes them a valuable investment for the future. The bungalows presented in this volume show the wide variety of options in terms of size, floor plans and design. The featured designers and architects create homes that satisfy the highest demands for uniqueness, comfort and quality.

Beyond that, they provide a defined and protected outdoor space that in itself is part of the architectural or landscape design. Based on selected case studies, this volume presents the design diversity of courtyards, focusing in particular on their expedient multifaceted use.

Описание: Elegant Japanese products, architecture, and interiors that build upon tradition while defining the future of design. After the visual excesses of the first decade of the new millennium, there now appears to be a distinct demand for clear and rational, yet forwardthinking, design. Seamlessly melding aesthetics, functionality, and quality while simultaneously avoiding excess has been a foundation of Japanese handicraft for hundreds of years. Creatives from Japan are masters at skillfully combining rational functionality with a contemporary sense of design in a way that seems effortless and even playful. Sublime is a comprehensive collection of the relevant trends in Japanese design that reveals the country's overall design aesthetic. The book presents architecture, interiors, and products that are created with an approach that is both rational and visionary. The results of this striking combination often appear futuristic and somehow transcendent. Japanese architecture is adept at bringing inner and outer areas of buildings together harmoniously. Even the smallest rooms can seem surprisingly spacious. Sublime explores the impact of the interplay between old-style handicraft and modern technology as well as traditional and high-tech materials on Japanese design. It features work by established names such as Naoto Fukasawa, Tokujin Yoshioka, Kengo Kuma, and Nendo, and introduces talent from a new generation that has found its own design style somewhere between a traditional Japanese approach and modern or post-modern influences. As the book clearly shows, a Japanese design philosophy based on local traditions has not only survived a general trend toward Westernization, but it is also being translated into outstanding examples of contemporary visual culture around the world.

Описание: This artist book is the most comprehensive survey of Novembres interior architecture and product design. In little over a decade Fabio Novembre has made a name for himself with eye-candy interiors, spectacular installations, and lush yet functional product designs. Novembre is a solo voice in todays chorus of minimalism, creating interiors, furniture, designs, and installations by mixing old and new materials, setting the time zone between Byzantium and Blade Runner. Strong and eloquent, in no way humble or soft-spoken, his architecture is radically explicit and manifest. He interweaves the pleasures of living with high design seemingly with perfect ease to create environments as he himself experiences them: intensely, and on a vibrantly personal level. This book is a comprehensive survey of Novembres designs to date, including the Blumarine store in London, the S.O.S. chair, and his chaise lounge for Cappellinipoetic creations that stir the often-lazy territories of communication and contemporary design and set new markers to future courses for international design style.
