The first in IMAGES' series of building monographs, 'The Classic House' takes an in-depth look at one of Ken Tate's magnificent classical homes. Testament to Tate's faithful attention to period details, Windy Hill appears to have evolved over centuries, rather than just a few years, and is a spectacular example of classical architecture when combined with the talents of skilled specialists including landscape architects, interior designers, and master craftsmen. Exquisite detailing is captured in close-up photography. No detail escapes the camera's critical eye, from the grand scale of the home and its surrounding gardens, to the minutiae of architectural details. Through detailed site, floor, and architectural plans, the various components of the house, its outbuildings and landscaped gardens are revealed to the reader. Superbly rendered drawings add an artistic dimension to a book already brimming with impressive detail. SELLING POINTS: - An in-depth view into the design of a spectacular Norman-inspired home - Detailed plans, drawings and photographs give an insight into the design process - Features extensive landscape architecture and interior design ideas 93 col., 20 b.andw.
