Description

An architecture aimed at environmental needs of a specific region is by definition like the local dialect or vernacular. Yet the over 200 homes that Hutker Architects, Inc. has hand-crafted avoid a single style. The 21 projects featured in this book illustrate a diverse and new regional vernacular architecture. They provide for thehome owner’s long term needs, both physical and psychological, use materials best suited to the spaces needed, and accommodate everchanging family arrangements. Whether small or large, these homes are treated as heirlooms bytheir owners, to be preserved and handed down to the next generation.
