Elegant rusticity meets unpretentious luxury in the work of this award winning architecture firm Howard Backen principal of the architecture firm Backen Gillam Kroeger is at the center of a popular movement in home design that emphasizes elegant simplicity and embraces the rustic charm of natural materials This volume the first on his work and that of the firm is an artful exploration of this aesthetic featuring farmhouses in the Napa Valley hilltop homes seaside retreats and lakeside hideaways Throughout the work a sense of intimacy warmth and informality pervades Natural materials such as wood stone and brick form the foundations walls and ceilings of these subtly luxurious spaces while nature itself plays a considered role that is at once complementary and also intricately conjoined with the work Sensitive alluring and wonderfully resonant with the suggestion of invitation the work of Backen Gillam Kroeger is both thrilling to the eye and restorative to the soul
