Necessity is the mother of invention, and the global necessity of facing the challenges of Climate Change has unleashed the inventive powers of architects around the world, many of whom are tackling the problem in original and highly creative ways. And yet, as the projects contained in this volume attest, sustainable design doesn't necessarily preclude style and comfort, or even a little bit of luxury.
This richly illustrated volume showcases the best of contemporary rural residential architecture from the world’s most innovative architects. The homes featured in 100 Country Houses: New Rural Architecture range from traditional to experimental, exemplifying a recent shift from the conventional country vernacular towards ultramodern, forward-thinking and eco-friendly designs. In many cases, less restrictive planning regulations in remote areas allow architects to push boundaries and flex their creative muscles, resulting in architectural creations of astonishing scope and vision.
This book picks up from where 100 Top Houses from Down Under left off with another fabulous collection of Aussie and Kiwi houses. There is something special about the way that 'our' architects and designers approach house design - in the way they exploit site, location, materials and the climate to add to the ever-evolving Down Under residential vernacular.Some of the stand-out projects in this new compilation include a former petrol station in New Zealand that is now a beautiful contemporary home (complete with mechanic's bay/wine cellar!)

Dostępność: na zamówienie This beautifully photographed book explores the lure of the countryside: the wide open spaces and starry skies, the lack of neighbours, noise and pollution, the ability to 'get away from it all'. Many people are choosing to persue their 'sea change' inland, and are creating some spectacular homes in well-hidden locations. However, the diversity and fragility of rural locations provide substantial challenges for the architect of today, primarily, how to insert a building into a pristine environment without affecting often delicate ecosystems.
