Jodido, Philip. Contemporary Interiors: A source of Design Ideas

Cl. Rizzoli 2016

Book ID: 99516

A must-have design source, with cutting-edge ideas from the worldÕs best designers and architects. Contemporary Interiors showcases a wide range of twenty-first-century residences by world-renowned architects and designers. Filled with more than 300 color illustrations, specialist Philip Jodidio compiles from around the globe fifty of the most innovative homes designed and built within the last five years. Whether urban or rural, large or small, the book has projects that are international in scope: a summer home in Montauk by Roman & Williams, Houssein JaroucheÕs apartment in Brazil by Triptyque; a David Adjaye house in West London; a Luxembourg "eco-green" house by Richard Meier; a Studio Mumbai Palmyra house in India; a Shigeru BanÐdesigned villa in Sri Lanka; a Tadao Ando house in Monterrey; Sean GodsellÕs Edward Street House in Melbourne, Australia. The book has hundreds of design ideas from minimialist white to cozy color that can be applied to each room of the house. Sou Fujimoto experiments with a house that is entirely open, without clearly defined floors; Werner SobekÕs B10 House is designed to be dismantled in one day and rebuilt in the same time frame; Eduardo ArroyoÕs house in Spain has iridescent polycarbonate walls that change colors with the light; the Leaf House by Mareines + Patalano architects has a curving swimming pool that enters the house and passes below the dining room where it becomes a pond with aquatic plants and fish; Steven HollÕs gallery and house in Seoul has his signature door that wraps into a corner, notched walls, and neo-constructivist lighting fixtures.
