More than any other kind of building, the family house reflects social change and technical innovation. It thus has a particular model character, allowing a high degree of experimentation with materials and spatial concepts. This is true of all the houses presented here: their interiors depart from the traditional division of space in favor of integrated rooms and functional solutions, while the exteriors are characterized by a careful choice of surface materials, the sensitive treatment of the plots and resources, and the attention paid to the surroundings and landscape. Bearing the stamp of the personal ideas and wishes of the clients, not to speak of the available budget, the result is a set of highly individual houses. This volume demonstrates in more than 550 illustrations, plans, elevations, and diagrams how modern architectural challenges can be met successfully.
