A Satisfying and Delightful Gem (With Plans of 31 Homes) 2 décembre 2013
Par S. L. Smith - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
At Home In New England captures every element of the Royal Barry Wills spirit that I adore - multi-sectioned structures, elevations that nestle into their sites, bonafide wood accoutrements, and rooms planned for privacy and quietude.

Most of the 31 homes here were designed over the last ten years by the 85+ year old firm that continues the legendary RBW name and style. I was pleased to see that some of the older homes from Houses For Good Living are included. (Very hard to find at a reasonable price, but worth it ... Houses for Good Living) And I am positively thrilled that plans - yes, including the second floor - are provided. This makes it easy to forgive the paucity of interior and exterior shots on so many of the homes.

As expected, certain modern elements have crept into the newer plans: open kitchen/living areas, larger rooms, and more bathrooms. (Although, I have to say I've always thought RBW was ahead of his time by being fairly generous with the number of bathrooms.) Some of these new designs are positively grand. For instance, a stately brick colonial titled "A House On Cape Cod" boasts 16,000 square feet of living space.

My favorite display is the side-by-side old versus new comparison of two versions of "A House in West Harwich". The original plan was good enough to win a Presidential Gold Medal, yet the modern modifications are very well and respectfully done.

Fittingly, the last home of the book is the one Royal Barry Wills designed for himself. This "House in Winchester" was designed to fit into an existent rose garden and features a large beamed study. It is unassuming yet dignified and livable. Much like every RBW house I have seen, it is exuberantly sedate and serene - a style I hope is never lost.

Exactly what I'd hoped it would be. A superb monograph! 12 décembre 2013

Absolutely superb. Exactly what I'd hoped it would be. I have a copy of one of Wills's older books, "More Houses for Good Living" and this new monograph honors the spirit of the older book and carries it forward into a new generation. In fact some of the classic houses by Royal Barry Wills from the older book are featured in this new volume, but most of the houses here are by Richard Wills and his firm. The Wills tradition is alive and well, in their hands. The inclusion of floor plans for each house makes it a genuine monograph on the firm's work, not just a book of pretty pictures. Richard Wills's own designs capture the simplicity, restraint and quiet good taste of his father's work, but in a way that is relevant to how people live today. Very impressive book and very reasonably priced. Well done!

An exceptional addition to my monograph collection. 22 novembre 2013

This book is perfect and I highly recommend adding this publication to any collection of architectural monographs. Great architect representing a legendary firm with nearly 100 years of excellence in residential design. Beautiful photos plus plans of several examples of work over a number of years. I hope there is a volume II in the planning stage. Well done.

A must read for purveyors of fine New England Residential Architecture 22 janvier 2014
Par Richard Wm Wogisch - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I am thoroughly enjoyed reading At Home in New England. It takes some time to absorb all the details, flipping back and forth to compare elevations and floor plans. The photography is stunning! I like that the floor plans are drawn in Royal Barry Wills style and would have loved them to be larger and it would have been nice if some of the smaller rooms were labeled, but with the publishing business these days, we are thankful for what we get! I think Keith Orlesky has done a great job with the introduction as I gleaned much new information and insights. I like his writing style in making each description of the individual houses unique. I am thrilled to see how the many examples of how Richards Wills carries on and yet refines his fathers design style to work in today's world of much larger houses. His expertise compliments, if not expounds on the tradition of excellent detailing and superb scale and execution. I only wish that there were more interior shots, but again understand why not.

Being a New England/Cape Cod disciple, I have thoroughly enjoyed this book. Many good photos, great back story accompanied by a lot of plans, which is always good.
