21st Century Sustainable Homes

143,85 zł Cena
"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.

With lush full-colour photography, detailed floor and site plans, and informative descriptions of each house's sustainable design elements, 'Sustainable Homes' takes the reader on a round-the-world journey, traversing a range of climates, to see how today's architects are making the most of traditional and modern design principles and technologies to create more energy efficient houses."

This book features Foster and Partners, Bohlin Cywinski Jackson, ONL, Renzo Piano, Populous, Zaha Hadid, UNStudio and Massimiliano Fuksas."

ARCHITECTURE FOR ARCHITECTS

183,75 zł Cena
Michael Crosbie's theme for this book is the architect's own office. As with most professions, first impressions are paramount, but architects who design their own offices have their own reputations on the line, in an acutely public manner. Clients may assess a firm's style on the design of its office, and commissions can be won or lost on the basis of vital first impressions. Architects' own offices can be effective sales vehicles for their services to potential clients and they can speak volumes about the style, ability and culture of the firm. The projects carefully chosen for this collection range from the humble but superbly designed, to the spectacular showpiece, each highlighting the importance of an architect's own office and the various roles it plays.

A new book by Stephen Crafti, the author of the "Small Spaces" series, "Beach Houses of Australia and New Zealand" and "Designing for Success: The Office"...

100 DREAM HOUSES FROM DOWN...

201,60 zł Cena
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!) a house in Brisbane built specifically as a showcase of sustainability a coastal house in Melbourne's Mornington Peninsula that uses a mathematical surface as its model, with intriguing spatial results a quirky house in New Zealand that alludes to a nearby railway station a house in suburban Melbourne that brings the garden inside, encouraging ecological diversity and modelling sustainable building practices several examples of significant renovations to period homes tranquil rural properties that engage so completely with the landscape as to almost disappear some streamlined, hip hard-edged warehouse/apartment projects gorgeous beachside projects with the requisite ocean views - the list continues.There are many common themes that link these seemingly diverse projects, but the overwhelming thread is the architects' commitment to an environmental agenda. No longer are passive and active thermal and solar devices, rainwater harvesting and storage, non-mechanical ventilation and the like considered new or experimental. They are integral elements that enrich and enhance the superb architecture practised 'Down Under'.

Out of Town

131,25 zł Cena
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. With the preservation of the natural environment a high priority, architects must work with challenging topography to create structures that 'touch the earth lightly'.

Houses of God

201,60 zł Cena
Dostępność: na zamówienie If this is architecture for the gods, the gods must be groaning. Not to say that this big, handsome paperback look at more than 40 recent faith-centered architectural projects around the U.S.--complete with full-color photographs, plans, and excellent annotations--doesn't make it amply and diversely clear that there has been a boom in America in recent years in the building of churches, synagogues, mosques, and nondenominational chapels. And certainly not to say that architects aren't finding all sorts of clever ways to update religious iconography for modern times, or combine traditional and contemporary architectural styles under one roof--be it deeply pitched, in the style of the classic country church (like the new St. James Episcopal Church in Fairhope, AL, whose heart-redwood boards, painted bone-white, evoke the region's charming Gulf Coast carpenter-Gothic style), or domed (like Skidmore Owings & Merrill's high-profile Islamic Cultural Center, the first mosque for New York City's sizable Muslim population, skewed on its site to face Mecca, as required by Muslim law, and complete with its own dramatic, postmodern minaret of square, terra-cotta-colored panels).
