From the Inside Flap
West Coast Modern Architecture, Interiors & Design By Zahid Sardar Photographs by Matthew Millman
Architects and designers are breaking new ground in the West, incorporating tested ideas with modern technologies, materials and concepts in thrilling and sustainable designs. This collection of more than 25 inspiring residences in Canada and the United States, including far-flung Hawaii and Alaska, by such renowned western architects and interior designers as Ricardo and Victor Legorreta, Tom Kundig, Jim Jennings, Steven Ehrlich, Leo Marmol, Ron Radziner, Anne Fougeron, Joshua Aidlin, David Darling, Greg Warner, Brooks Walker, Paul Wiseman, Terry Hunziker and Gary Hutton showcases large and small homes that respond to the expansive deserts, mountains, plains and coastlines of the West. Designed for a range of climates, the houses allude to Mesoamerican adobe and Spanish Mission courtyard dwellings yet sport a modern western aesthetic. The sculptural forms and elegant interiors are at once both urban and rural, open to the outdoors and always contemporary, comfortable and stylish.
