Poetry of Place: The New Architecture and Interiors of McALPINE, a new volume by the group, features recent projects and an appealing approach to creating dwellings blending styles, ne craftsmanship, and indigenous materials. Following from their rst book, The Home Within Us, this book pro les nineteen stunning projects, from a stone tower folly standing in the gardens of a Tudor-style house to a humble yet elegant wooden lakeside retreat.
Through his poetic voice, Bobby McAlpine narrates the story of each residence, pointing out their unique qualities. Featured are an exotic Florida panhandle beach house; a Tuscan-style horse farm; a rambling Colonial Revival compound; and a miniature European manor house, among others. These houses are classically understated and welcoming. With 300 gorgeous photographs of inspiring interiors and exteriors, Poetry of Place will appeal to those interested in design and romancing the past.
