Summary
  • Terrace, or row, houses are part of the fabric of almost every town and city in the West. Town Houses is the first book to approach the history of their architecture from 1200 right up to the present day on an international scale. It explores the fascinating background and character of over 120 town houses, from medieval Romanesque buildings to contemporary steel and glass structures, and offers revealing insights into their design and layout and the lifestyles of those who have occupied them
  • Town Houses examines how architects, builders, and craftsmen have adapted to changes in society and technological advances in each century, providing a testament to their skill and ingenuity. It focuses on the need for conserving this diverse and revealing aspect of our urban past and on remarkable present-day innovations in this continuing and vibrant architectural tradition
