Description

The South is known for its preserved mansions but many more beautiful twenty-first century houses preserve that same sense of ambiance. In over 400 full-color images, twenty Southern design professionals with varying architectural styles exhibit their award-winning work, ranging from classical Georgian symmetry to modernist traditions infused with fascinating flair. From Virginia to Arkansas, their work features expansive, open floor plans, walls of glass, and the use of indigenous materials. You can still see those Greek revival columns and the walls of hinged shutters, but you can also observe a remarkable range of homes that skillfully reflect their physical and cultural milieus within the contemporary era. Glass walls and open floor plans notwithstanding, these residences offer charm and authenticity. The architects' diverse backgrounds and design philosophies are shaping the South in the twenty-first century.
