Product description


"Homes Worth Aspiring To. The Urban House is a sensory splash of 25 pristine dwellings in cities around the world." -The New York Times

"Call it windy, sinful, or sleepless, but in the end, a city is defined by its inhabitants and the architecture they create. Ron Broadhurst explores this symbiotic relationship in The Urban House, a gorgeous new volume that examines the ideas and influences behind 25 innovative metropolitan dwellings." -Architectural Digest

"Each page seems more dreamy than the last... opens the doors to twenty five of those escapes, inviting the reader into private residences that many (or more aptly, most) can only dream of... belongs in the library of any city dweller- no matter the jealousy it may ignite." -Rue Magazine

"City living can be chaotic, crowded and stressful, which is why these 25 homes are so appealing. They illustrate how excellent design can offer an oasis of calm and serenity in the urban jungle." -Belle

“Must-have interior design book” -212 Concept
