Houses : An Architectural Guide Hardback
Part of the Pevsner Architectural Guides: Introductions series
An enthusiast's guide to exploring historic houses of England, this informative book also enables readers to discover more about the history of their own houses.
Users can learn to interpret domestic architecture, identify period styles, uncover the origins of a building, and understand why rooms are arranged in particular sequences, why window and chimney designs change through history, or why staircases are presented in a certain fashion.
Color photography and informative line drawings illustrate the explanations and provide a rich visual history of domestic architecture from the earliest surviving dwellings to the most avant-garde developments.
