Dettagli

Architecture reflects the period of time in which it was created. This is true for landmarkbuildings and major public projects as well as residential and family properties.Yet architecture is also an expression of an individual’s personality, needs, taste,and his or her overall take on life. Different countries, cultures, and lifestyles influencethe design of structures and interiors as much as the local climate and otherregional characteristics do. What does a house need to become a home? Infinite Space provides answers tothis question that are as varied as the people behind the projects presented on itspages. Singles, couples, and families; clients, architects, and suppliers―they allhave their own ideas of what makes a modern home. While the featured buildings have a contemporary clarity, lightness, andopenness in common, they differ greatly in their details. The spectrum of materials used includes wood, stone, metal, andglass. Colors range from bright to subdued; furnishings from glamorously elaborate to tastefully understated. Their unique combinationgives each house its character or, rather, reflects the character of its owners, builders, and residents.A terrace by a lake, a dramatic fireplace,a living room bathed in sunlight adjoining an open-plan kitchen, a pool amongst palmtrees, a sauna in the forest, a bedroom with a sky view―Infinite Space showcases stunningprojects from all around the world captured by renowned architecture and interior photographer James Silverman onhis travels. In his images of living rooms, bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchens, dining rooms, working areas, children’s rooms,and gardens, Silverman explores the interplay of functional and decorative space, as well as interiors and exteriors.Infinite Space takes a nuanced look at how houses are constructed today. This book will not only inspire professional architectsand interior designers, but it will also prompt anyone building or renovating a house to define their own particular homein more detail―little by little, and each time slightly differently. Until their dream home becomes a reality.
