Architectural detailing makes every piece of architecture individual. Even Mies van der Rohe famously stated that 'God is in the details'. This book by Stephen Crafti, one of the world's most prolific architectural commentators, looks exclusively at architectural detailing for residential architecture. Details in a home can transform the building into something considerably more than just a house. An ideal guide for the homeowner, builder and architect. Whether it's a staircase, window treatment, the use of skylights, fireplaces or custom-made joinery, these details personalise space and create memorable architecture in the process. This book highlights many of these wonderful details. Also available: Details in Design ISBN 9781920744281 £35.00
