Next Generation Living Homes

When architects go to build their own homes, they’re able to take the lessons they’ve learned from past projects and experiment freely without the demands of clients. In the new book Architects’ Houses (Princeton Architectural Press, $50), author Michael Webb looks at 30 homes built by world-class architects over the past decade. From Norman Foster’s inventive retreat on the French Riviera to Hans Van Heeswijk’s three-story glass house in Amsterdam, these homes showcase the architects’ personalities and make a design statement. Webb also delves into the rich legacy of architects’ homes over the past 200 years, beginning with Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello and continuing on to the iconic houses of Charles and Ray Eames and Frank Gehry. The book is a fascinating look inside the minds—and homes—of some of the industry’s most celebrated talents.
