Architecture reflects the period of time inwhich it was created. This is true for landmarkbuildings and major public projectsas well as residential and family properties.Yet architecture is also an expressionof an individual's personality, needs, taste,and his or her overall take on life. Differentcountries, cultures, and lifestyles influencethe design of structures and interiorsas much as the local climate and otherregional characteristics do.What does a house need to become ahome? Infinite Space provides answers tothis question that are as varied as the peoplebehind the projects presented on itspages. Singles, couples, and families; clients,architects, and suppliers--they allhave their own ideas of what makes a modernhome. While the featured buildingshave a contemporary clarity, lightness, andopenness in common, they differ greatlyin their details. The spectrum of materialsused includes wood, stone, metal, andglass. Colors range from bright to subdued;furnishings from glamorously elaborate totastefully understated. Their unique combinationgives each house its character or,rather, reflects the character of its owners,builders, and residents.A terrace by a lake, a dramatic fireplace,a living room bathed in sunlight adjoiningan open-plan kitchen, a pool amongst palmtrees, a sauna in the forest, a bedroom witha sky view--Infinite Space showcases stunningprojects from all around the worldcaptured by renowned architecture andinterior photographer James Silverman onhis travels.
