A luxurious, graphically compelling vision for contemporary domestic living, as observed and artfully presented by the Oscar-winning film star. House is Diane Keaton’s stunning portrayal of the way we may and do live now, in rusticated, reimagined, or repurposed spaces across the country. Inventive designers, including Annabelle Selldorf, Roy McMakin, Rick Joy, and Tom Kundig, have brought their talents to bear upon the structurally old, the disused, and the antiquated, finding in these buildings the hidden beauty that lies beneath the surface of neglect and decay, and through their work revealing to us the many possibilities we might bring to our own domestic spaces. Through innovative design and repurposing, industrial structures and farm buildings, crumbling commercial lofts and rusting hangars are transformed and vividly revealed as thoroughly engaging spaces for living. House presents a graphically striking vision, frequently marked by strong geometries and primal coloration, that ignites the imagination of those intent upon redefining the possible as it pertains to one’s space—work that is joyous and rooted in our most basic understandings of home.

Editorial Reviews

"The volume stunningly portrays rusticated homes, aging farmhouses and crumbling lofts, all with beauty hidden beneath neglect and decay." ~Papercity Magazine

"Diane Keaton’s new design book House is an original concept, unlike anything you may expect from the Oscar winning actress or in a decor book in general." ~thesimplyluxuriouslife.com

"...beautiful new book...It’s a lavish and mesmerizing photographic poem to iconic simplicity in home design, with compelling images of barn- and factory-inspired homes." ~Houseplans.com

"Bold images of walls and windows and arpeggios of stairways, woodstacks, Seldorf Architects’ hallways and walls, and reflections and shimmering metal will thrill and delight many readers." ~Stylesaloniste.com

"It''s a lavish and mesmerizing photographic poem to iconic simplicity in home design, with compelling images of barn-and factory-inspired homes. The underlying theme is that simplicity isn''t simple, but metaphoric and resonant..." ~HousePlans.com
