This colorful compendium takes readers on a rewarding photographic and narrative tour through two of Bassenian/Lagoni's most-popular books; Tuscan & Andalusian Reflections provides an intimate view of 20 of the most significant Tuscan and Andalusian-style homes created over the past decade by Bassenian/Lagoni Architects. Included are homes found along the coast of California, as well as in the Nevada desert, that echo the forms, textures and motifs of structures built in the hilltowns of Tuscany and on the plains of Andalusia. Homes & Courtyards features 23 new Bassenian/Lagoni homes and communities that exhibit superb indoor/outdoor relationships, as well as a glimpse at five worldwide communities designed around these same principles. Close-up examples are given of eye-appealing patios, porches, decks and loggias, along with the well-designed interior rooms that flow to meet them. A treasury of wonderful photographs, floor plans and information, this one-of-a-kind compilation will serve as a valuable resource for anyone who is planning, decorating or remodeling a home or for anyone who simply loves to peek inside some of the most memorable homes in the world!
