Tuscan & Andalusian Reflections
Within the pages of this dazzling book, readers will find 20 of the most significant new homes designed by Bassenian/Lagoni Architects of Newport Beach, California. Inspired by the architecture of Southern Europe, yet totally new, these graceful, time-tempered homes display up-to-date floor planning, the finest amenities and picturesque landscaping. Built in the canyons and along the coasts of California, as well as in the deserts of Nevada, theses homes echo the architectural forms, textures and motifs of structures built in the hill towns of Tuscany and the plains of Andalusia. The homes range from stunning Tuscan courtyard homes in Rancho Santa Fe to a trio of walled and tiled Spanish/Andalusian designs in Irvine to an amazingly versatile family-recreation hacienda in Las Vegas. Each home is depicted by glorious color photographs, both inside and out, as well as a detailed site plan and colored floor plan with furniture in place. A special section for each major project entitled “It’s In The Details” gives readers a close-up view of the architectural design and building details that make these homes extraordinary. A very helpful Annotated Projects List at the back of the book provides a complete listing of the builders, structural engineers, landscape architects and interior designers who contributed to each project. Also included in the book is a Forward by A. David Kovach, a distinguished housing marketer and design commentator, as well as an Introduction by Aram Bassenian, AIA and Carl Lagoni, AIA, Chairman/CEO and President, respectively, of Bassenian/Lagoni Architects. For consumers, this inspiring and well-crafted collection will serve as a valuable resource of ideas for design, landscaping and interiors created in the Old World style, but with a fresh California twist. For professionals and students, this remarkable book will provide examples of innovative floor planning, adept use of forms and materials and execution of a comprehensive design vision that has become the hallmark of Bassenian/Lagoni Architects.
