A HOUSE IN THE COUNTRY: PETER PENNOYER, KATIE RIDDER. Vendome Press, New York, 2016. Distributed by Abrams, New York. 228 pp. (2 foldout) with 258 ills. (242 col.). 32 x 27 cm. LC 2016-20072 ISBN 9780865653290 In English.
Publisher's description: Nestled amid the lush, gently rolling hills of cattle and horse farms in Millbrook, New York, is a handsome Greek Revival house that looks like it's always been there. In fact, it is brand new -- the collaborative effort of architect Peter Pennoyer and his wife, interior designer Katie Ridder. This irresistible book, exquisitely illustrated with photographs, finely rendered plans, and hand-painted illustrations, tells the home's story. The design followed Pennoyer's conviction that historical examples are a springboard for the imagination and offer compelling solutions for new architecture. So, though many characteristics of the house are classical, and, more specifically, Greek Revival, it is also thoroughly contemporary and environmentally friendly, with an exuberantly colorful interior and spectacular gardens.
