Large format. Publisher's description: Not the largest houses -- but the most sensitively conceived of, and the most in tune with their own surroundings To Karen, the super house has nothing to do with size; instead, it is one that has a strong connection with nature, that goes well beyond the everyday, and that, through the sensitivity of both architect and client, is imbued with mindfulness. From Australia to Ireland, Italy to Morocco, she's found such spiritually uplifting places. Following interviews with many of the architects and owners, she discusses each house in detail; her informed and engaging text is matched by Richard Powers' striking photography. This collection is a must for anyone interested in architecture and design.
