House Home Heart: Artistry and Craftsmanship in the Architecture of Shope Reno Wharton
The first monograph on this prestigious firm, whose work has been featured dozens of times in "Architectural Digest" as well as many other international magazines, "House, Home, Heart: Artistry and Craftsmanship in the Architecture of Shope Reno Wharton" is an impressive portfolio of residences and clubhouses by a firm who believes in building houses that are grounded in history but that look toward the future. Though based on the past, the residences designed by Shope Reno Wharton Architecture are in no way bound by tradition. The way people live today is very different from the way they lived 100 years ago, and architecture has become much more inviting to that lifestyle, explains Bernard Wharton. We like houses that reflect a sense of casualness in an ordered way, yet that have a formality when needed. With a foreword written by Pulitzer Prize-winner and architecture critic Paul Goldberger, and over 300 pages of stunning photography and complete site and floor plans, "House, Home, Heart" is as impressive and monumental as the work it displays.
Shope Reno Wharton is a Connecticut-based architecture firm, founded in 1981, that continues to redefine modern architecture within a context of traditional sensibilities. Their work has been featured dozens of times in Architectural Digest, as well as many other international magazines.
