This title includes a foreword by H. R. H. the Prince of Wales. Sick of McMansions? Marianne Cusato, creator of the award-winning Katrina Cottages, is a champion of traditional architectural principles: structural common sense, aesthetics of form, appropriateness to a neighbourhood and sustainability. She presents the definitive guide to what makes houses look and feel right, revealing the dos and don'ts of liveable home design. Hundreds of elegant line drawings, rendering the varieties of architectural features and displaying "avoid" and "use" versions of the same elements side by side, make this an indispensable resource for designing and building a timelessly beautiful home.
