Summary: Architect Russell Versaci shows that it is possible to design and create a new house that looks and feels like it has always been there. Featuring 17 homes that are the best examples classic regional styles, Versaci shows how to create a home that feels old and lives new. The book explores how architects, builders, and craftsmen are reinterpreting the traditional house. Through full colour photographs and engaging text, brief discussions of history and craftsmanship, and occasional sidelong glances at the workings of real old houses, Versaci employs his pillars of traditional design to explain how traditional houses go together and what gives them their unique design appeal.
