Single Family Houses - concepts, planning, construction

£30.00

Product description

The private single-family house is by far the most popular form of housing, and because of its size, it is a popular project with architects. In this book, 15 international examples are presented, reviewing the most important aspects of construction including the use of wood, steel, brickwork and concrete which have all become established materials for this type of building. All plans and details from the base to the roof have been painstakingly researched with the high degree of competence typical of the review Detail and the uniform presentation makes the information immediately accessible, inviting comparison and analysis. The authors provide explanatory introductions to the fundamental aspects of planning, from the design of the floor plans to the realisation, and they set this type of building within the context of the 20th century, pointing towards the potential developments of the single family house. In cooperation with DETAIL, review of architecture and construction detail.
The unclipped dustjacket has only light shelf wear. The hardback cover is in good condition apart from a bump and very small mark on the front. The binding is sound. The pages are clean and unmarked apart from a stamp on the front endpaper.
