A monographic treatment, gorgeously illustrated, of two house projects by architects Salvatore LaRosa and Ronald Bentley, of B Five Studio in New York. These works were painstakingly developed over time, and are deeply considered from the scale of the landscape to custom-made items of furniture and decorative arts. They engage history, nature, rituals that are both sacred and everyday, and the meaning of domesticity.
Salvatore LaRosa is a founding partner of B Five Studio. In addition to his work as an architect and designer, he was Treasurer of The Architectural League of New York and taught at Parsons School of Design. He has received numerous awards for his art, including three recently from AIA's Faith and Form Religious Art & Architecture Awards.
