The Urban House


An authoritative volume on the most innovative new residential design in cities around the globe. This carefully curated book presents twenty-five new and recent spaces for city living in the twenty-first century. Author Ron Broadhurst has selected projects that represent asset of ideas that can be described as belonging particularly to our time and which will shape how we think of living in the city in the future. Where the great experimenters of the last century were stripping away ornamentation and creating free-flowing spaces for the first time, today’s innovators are pioneering research for the potential of new materials for both formal invention and environmental sustainability and creating bold and sophisticated essays in the adaptive reuse of spaces originally designed for other purposes. What emerges is a portrait of the most forward sophisticated essays in soaring loft spaces to ingenious new penthouse constructions compete with rooftop lawns–all perfectly suited to twenty-first century lifestyles. Included here is the work of such design luminaries as David Adjaye, Andree Putman, Annabelle Selldorf, UNStudio, and Allied Works Architecture, in locations across the globe, including New York, London, Los Angeles and Barcelona. Together these projects make The Urban House a uniquely coherent and authoritative volume on the best in new residential design.
