Lots of content 10 Feb. 2007
By Brandon Skinner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I own many books dedicated to a single architects work. Often times these type of books display two or three rooms of a house and never get into the nitty gritty of a project. "Tom Kundig: Houses" is different. This book leaves little to the imagination, offering sometimes up to 15-20 pages to a single project. The pictures are very clear and tell a lot about the concept of a house as a whole. The only knock I'd say is that every project is so similar to the next that it becomes hard to differentiate. But if you admire his style, that shouldn't be much of a problem.

Amazing craftsmanship and details illustrated 30 Nov. 2008
By Heejae Lee - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I first came across Tom Kundig's works in the monograph for Olson Sundberg Kindig Allen's monograph (Olson Sundberg Kundig Allen Architects: Architecture, Art, and Craft) and was amazed then at the refined "human" touch of materials and finishes chosen for the projects.
This book focuses further on this aesthetic appeal by showcasing Tom Kundig's houses only. It shows some of the numerous sketches and drawings that Tom Kundig drew in order to convey his ideas to the client/contractor. The level of details depicted in the photography is also breathtaking as it reveals the intricate details of bespoke door handles, hinges, rollers that the architect custom designed. I only wish I knew how long and how much each of his projects must've costed his clients because this level of detail in any residence is very. very rare.
I highly recommend this book for anyone that is interested in modern houses that uses rustic materials in a refined composition~

Dream Houses 3 Feb. 2010
By Mr. Williams - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Well made and laid out book. Shows floor plans and plenty of descriptions. IMHO, Tom Kundig is the Frank L. Wright of the 21st Century with his unique designs and innovations. Architecture that is thinking "outside the box". Have had many of my friends browse through this book at my house, and their expression and comments are always "WOW!". I really like the Delta Shelter in the book. Many inspirations for my future Dream Cabin.

Brilliant book, extremely good value, one of best ever purchases.. 28 Oct. 2013
By Mark - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
We bought this with Tom's sequel "Houses 2" and its one of my favourites of all time now. Primarily pictorial, with excellent quality photography and inclusion of designer's diagrams. Theres always something new to notice on each page and the surrounding landscapes on most pictures are worth admiring in their own right!
This and Houses 2 will be one of the few books we bring with us when we relocate internationally in the near future. Highly recommended to anyone interested in architecture, design, photography, landscapes or just an interesting book to leave out for guests.

A great example of thorough documentation on a house 31 Aug. 2008
By Mark - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
It has it all...big picture (site info, plans/sections/elevations and design sketches) to little picture (construction details and process).
Too bad the recently published Ebsworth monograph isn't as comprehensive as this...
