Publisher's description: Guesthouses can be found in nearly every corner of the world as urban and rural dwellers open their homes, or build new ones, to host visitors. These habitats take a multitude of forms, styles, and even names - B&B in Britain, pensions in France, minshuku in Japan, as well as being referred to as apartment hotels, boutique hotels, or hostels in some countries. Their primary goal, however, is to satisfy the accommodation requirements and desired experience of the guests. In contrast to the ordinary hotel, guesthouses combine unique and attractive features with thematic concepts that are intended to appeal to a visitor's individuality. Hosts provide guests with more than just accommodation options; they seek to generate an environment that offers a cultural experience by means of personalized interaction and service. On a conceptual level, the guest house addresses architecture and interior design as critical methods of contributing to an alternative or ideal lifestyle. Escape: Designing the Modern Guest House showcases 43 distinctive projects from around the world. These exclusive works have visual and spatial impact, representing the essence of new guesthouse design.
