Product description


From the work explored in Houses 2, its obvious that Kundig has mastered both the simple and the complex-- and that one of the joys of his work is that nothing is overlooked. --Designers & Books

Handsome... The book's artful shots of [the houses] let you come at them from all angles, creating an illusion of immersion in them. --Seattle Times

Seattle architect Tom Kundig designs striking contemporary homes, 17 of which are featured in a recently-released photo book. "Tom Kundig: Houses 2" follows up on his first collection, released in 2006. --Seattle Post-Intelligencer

The architect follows up his first monograph with a new volume devoted to 17 stunning homes. The far-flung projects-from an industrial-chic apartment in New York City to a cliff-side beach house in Maui-showcase Kundig's inventive use of steel, concrete, and glass as well as his ability to create flexible spaces that incorporate the buildings' natural surroundings.

For fans of Tom Kundig's houses, both of the books published by Princeton Architectural Press are must-haves. The first is exemplary for presenting the details of his kinetic designs. The sequel makes it clear that his design skills are consistent across close to 20 projects, regardless of location, scale or size. Houses 2 also includes plenty of interior photos. These prove that Kundig equally excels at crafting interior spaces that are appropriate for each house and client and are as varied as his exteriors are kinetic.

Handsome...The book's artful shots of [the houses] let you come at them from all angles, creating an illusion of immersion in them. --Seattle Times

Manipulating and combining familiar cultural and physical material, [Kundig] makes buildings that do unfamiliar, wonderful things... This volume joins Tom Kundig: Houses (2008) as testament to an architectural original at the height of his formidable powers. --Residential Architecture
