The New Bungalow
The New Bungalow
Hardcover      ISBN: 1586850423

The Arts & Crafts bungalow has been reborn, in as rich and full an array of iterations as it was in its heyday -- from tight clusters of similar inexpensive housing opportunities to the grand, and arguably borderline, bungalow scale of the "ultimate bungalows" of the 1910s. The New Bungalow is a celebration of contemporary interpretations of this classic house style -- an art form that symbolizes the best of the good life. It offers an alternative solution to the tract development filled with homes appliqued with various random trim details and contrived architectural components. It is a guide to creating a home that has a true, honest expression of style. Given their simple lines, spacious and open floorplans, natural tones, and colors, it is no mystery why new bungalow developments are gaining popularity.
