This book takes a close look at seven houses designed by Steven Holl, considered one of America's most influential architects. It offers the reader unprecedented access to the thought processes and work of this groundbreaking, cutting-edge architect through his own words and watercolors--and more than 100 photographs.
This volume features seven of his residential houses and looks at his approach to modernist suburban residences, including two new homes finished in 2017. Viewed as a collection, these houses serve to demonstrate the wide range of Holl's prodigious genius through lavish and striking photographs as well as Holl's own descriptions. Considered one of America's most important architects, Holl is recognized for his ability to blend space and light with great contextual sensitivity and to utilize the unique qualities of each project to create a concept-driven design. Time magazine declared Holl "America's Best Architect" for his "buildings that satisfy the spirit as well as the eye."
"Holl has masterfully advanced that luminist vision architecturally through large-scale civic projects marked by lyrical sweeps of seemingly sculpted light. This invaluable and impeccably designed monograph concentrates, instead, on his homes, similarly enlightened. The Ex of In House ingenuously creates a 918-square-foot house, geothermally and solar-powered, with no bedroom, yet with inviting space to sleep five. A poetic understanding of site as a home’s foundation informs Holl’s masterful alchemy of wood and glass. These houses transcend being objects and are experiences of how Holl’s understanding of site and light enliven our sense of what “house” can mean." —ArchNewsNow.com
"Sub-subtitled "Luminist Architecture," this handsome, slipcased book documents seven Steven Holl houses completed over the last twenty years, some of them on the architect's own property north of New York City." —Archidose
"But his residential work, also steeped in structural energy-saving methods, is really a testament to his love of nature and his creativity in mining the gifts of natural light, as illustrated by the seven houses he features in his new book, Steven Holl: Seven Houses, from Rizzoli New York." —New York Magazine
