Single family houses
Edition Detail, Oct 28, 2005 - Architecture - 192 pages
The popularity of the single-family house is undiminished. Perhaps more than any other field in architecture, the private house has witnessed tremendous changes in recent years and not only with regard to user needs. Rising energy and resource costs have emphasized the topicality of subjects such as multi-functionality, the use of innovative materials and sustainable building and increased their importance.
This fully revised and expanded second edition responds to these current developments. The overall structure and layout of the volume, as well as the clear and comprehensive project documentation are maintained. As a guide to the topic, the authors provide extensive comments on planning solutions in relation to current projects, while at the same time offering an in-depth introduction to single-family house planning, ranging from floor-plan design to useful tips on execution.
These contributions are complemented by 22 international project documentations, which provide insights for planners, students and clients alike. Organized according to construction materials, each house is presented in detail from the foundation to the roof, illustrated with sequential sections. "In DETAIL Single Family Houses" is a source of inspiration and a planning aid for everyone faced with the task of building a house.
