  • New Suburban Remaking the Family Home in Australia & New Zealand
    New Suburban Remaking the Family Home in Australia & New Zealand
    Remember what was good about the suburbs? Simple family homes with ample outdoor space to garden, play, entertain or relax...This ideal is no longer confined to outer urban areas. New, adaptable and innovative homes with space to live and play are being created in the suburbs and inner-city. Stuart Harrison, along with some of our best architects, challenges the notion that we must choose between amenity and outdoor space, between small city apartments and huge houses miles from anywhere. New Suburban showcases thirty houses that offer brilliant alternatives through intelligent and original architecture: new houses plus imaginative makeovers in both city and suburb. All value light, openness and the outdoors, while providing ample space for families in energy-efficient, flexible and beautiful dwellings. In A Place in the Sun and Forty-six Square Metres of Land Doesn't Normally Become a House, Stuart Harrison championed sustainable and efficient houses. Now he rediscovers what's best in suburbia and re-envisions housing that is exciting, adaptable, attractive and sustainable for communities of the future.

  • Notre Dame A Short History of the Meaning of Cathedrals
    Notre Dame A Short History of the Meaning of Cathedrals
    Ken Follett will donate his proceeds from this book to the charity La Fondation du Patrimoine.

    "The wonderful cathedral of Notre-Dame de Paris, one of the greatest achievements of European civilization, was on fire. The sight dazed and disturbed us profoundly. I was on the edge of tears. Something priceless was dying in front of our eyes. The feeling was bewildering, as if the earth was shaking" - Ken Follett

    In this short, spellbinding book, international bestselling author Ken Follett describes the emotions that gripped him when he learned about the fire that threatened to destroy one of the greatest cathedrals in the world - the Notre-Dame de Paris. Follett then tells the story of the cathedral, from its construction to the role it has played across time and history, and he reveals the influence that the Notre-Dame had upon cathedrals around the world and on the writing of one of Follett's most famous and beloved novels, The Pillars of the Earth.

  • Notre-Dame de Paris
    Notre-Dame de Paris
    With its spectacular rose windows, majestic spire, soaring vaults, twin bell towers, and massive pipe organ, the gothic cathedral Notre-Dame de Paris has long stood as a symbol of of that city. People openly wept as fire swept through the iconic building in April 2019, which sustained colossal damage. In stunning photographs, this volume celebrates Notre-Dame through the ages: its beginnings in 1160 and construction during the Middle Ages, its survival through the French Revolution and two World Wars, its coronations (including Napoleon's), royal weddings, and presidential funerals; its resurgence after the publication of Victor Hugo's novel The Hunchback of Notre-Dame, its magnificent relics and artwork; its portrayal by artists through time, and, finally, its recent near-destruction...and the miraculous efforts to save it, and restore it to its former glory and beyond.

  • Off the Grid
    Off the Grid
    Recent advances in technologies and home-generated renewable energy have made building away from urban and rural infrastructures more practical and affordable than ever. This survey of the world's most innovative off-grid homes reveals the cuttingedge architecture and technology that is enabling us to escape to some of the most extraordinary natural environments on the planet.

    All of the houses featured in this book are fully, or almost fully, self-sufficient in terms of energy, water and, in some cases, food. Architecture and interior design expert Dominic Bradbury reveals how each architect has made everyday living in these wild and natural settings a rewarding and tempting reality. From snowbound cabins in the far Northern Hemisphere to coastal retreats that can only be accessed by boat, the diverse projects collected here show the innovative ways in which architects and their clients are tackling extreme climates, remoteness and construction challenges to enable a new way of life that is both liberating and sustainable.

    The imperative to reduce our carbon footprints and refocus on renewable sources of energy is having a profound impact on our domestic lives. This fascinating survey demonstrates that creative architecture, design and technology are redefining the possibilities for leading a truly rewarding and responsible lifestyle.

    Pallets 3.0: Remodeled, Reused, Recycled: Architecture + Design
    A journey through the surprising, adventurous and unlimited world of pallet design.

    Today still in Tokyo, tomorrow already in Cape Town, Bar-celona or San Francisco: pallets are the universal symbol for globalized world trade. Their design is simple, their material sturdy and their purchase cheap. Yet, these are the very characteristics in combination with the raw and rough wood look that inspire architects and designers to remodel, reuse and recycle this seemingly inconspicuous flat transport platform for their own creations.

    With numerous projects from all over the world, this volume demonstrates the limitless possibilities of engag-ing creatively with pallets. Used for buildings they undergo spectacular architectural transformations, while in art they are reinterpreted in surprising ways and cleverly de-constructed when utilized as a feature of interior design.

  • Patterson  Houses of Aotearoa
    Patterson Houses of Aotearoa
    In Maori culture, architecture is approached as a construction of beliefs: a building must emulate and amplify personalities, hopes and aspirations, becoming the physical expression of those who inhabit it. These ideas and others are the inspirations behind the house projects of New Zealand architect Andrew Patterson, who has been designing houses and civic projects in the country for over thirty years and was awarded the New Zealand Institute of Architects 2017 Gold Medal.

    This book showcases seventeen of Patterson's recent houses, in some of the most dramatic locations in New Zealand, from stunning seascape retreats to hillside cabins. Each house reveals how Patterson's architecture responds to the region's breathtaking landscapes to tell the story of the country's cultural history and to create a sense of place and belonging. This fully illustrated, large-format overview is interspersed with thematic sections that present Patterson's key influences and the culture and lifestyles of New Zealand more broadly, particularly Maori language, history and mythology.

  • Relaxed Coastal Style
    Relaxed Coastal Style
    Scientists tell us that living by the ocean makes us happier and healthier: increased views of blue space have a calming effect and sea air improves our ability to absorb oxygen. Being by water brings a sense of tranquillity and relaxation and a home by the sea has never been more desirable.

    The first part of the book offers up Sally's unique take on coastal style, celebrating the colours and textures of the seaside: bare wooden boards, uncurtained windows, and furnishings covered in robust linen or cotton that will endure salt water and the sun's rays. Sally also looks at lighting, furniture and coastal decorative accents such as maps, charts and nautical-themed accessories. She draws inspiration from beachcombing, displaying shells and driftwood to feel close to nature and the sound of the waves. The second half of the book visits a selection of glorious coastal houses, cottages and hideaways that are guaranteed to enchant and inspire. Wherever you live, relaxed Coastal style will inspire you to adopt the relaxed, informal simplicity of life by the sea.

  • Shelfie
    Shelfie
    A decorating trend and social media phenomenon, 'the shelfie' originally emerged in response to the clutter-clearing movement. What started as a label for beautiful bookshelves is now applied to artfully stylish arrangements of collectables, flowers, photos, crafting ephemera, perfume bottles - and of course books. And shelfies don't just appear on shelves, but also on desks, worktops and fireplaces.

    De-cluttering, and then curating our favourite possessions stylishly, is a great way to bring personality into the home and workspace. In the first book on the shelfie, Martha Roberts shows you how to source, sort and arrange your belongings for every room in the house. Photography by Nick Pope, who took the photographs for At Home with Plants, also published by Mitchell Beazley.

    'While most of us are just beginning to get to grips with the selfie, the 'shelfie' movement has been gaining digital ground. The self-obsessed are becoming the 'shelf-obsessed.' - Talib Choudry, the Telegraph
