Houses on Difficult SitesBook - 2005
Following each step of the design and construction process of over thirty houses constructed on especially difficult sites, this book is a highly practical and instructive sourcebook. The projects featured address a range of challenges, from "cliffhangers" that appear to hover in thin air, to houses set on steeply sloping plots and tiny, odd-shaped parcels of land that are hemmed in on all sides. Clearly it has been no mean feat to pull off these architectural miracles and great care has been taken here to include detailed technical information. Particular emphasis is given to the engineering techniques, construction processes and materials used. Houses on Difficult Sites focuses on an issue that is often excluded from architectural publications. It is an invaluable source of information for all architectural professionals and students.
