a talented designer and an absolute must-buy book.

This book focuses further on this aesthetic appeal by showcasing Tom Kundig's houses only. It shows some of the numerous sketches and drawings that Tom Kundig drew in order to convey his ideas to the client/contractor. The level of details depicted in the photography is also breathtaking as it reveals the intricate details of bespoke door handles, hinges, rollers that the architect custom designed. I only wish I knew how long and how much each of his projects must've costed his clients because this level of detail in any residence is very. very rare.
I highly recommend this book for anyone that is interested in modern houses that uses rustic materials in a refined composition~
This and Houses 2 will be one of the few books we bring with us when we relocate internationally in the near future. Highly recommended to anyone interested in architecture, design, photography, landscapes or just an interesting book to leave out for guests.
