A Look at Great American Homes

New title delves into architecture of the South

Produced by Sally Finder Weepie

The third volume in Images Publishing’s successful Classicist series is Great American Homes, a richly illustrated book that features the work of well-known Atlanta architect William T. Baker. Inspired by the bounty of classical architecture found in the grand homes of the South, the hallmarks of Baker's architecture are extraordinary attention to details of craftsmanship and construction and a keen eye for scale and proportion.

Great American Homes showcases an array of exquisite new homes, including the Conor House, shown on the cover of the book and in interior images such as the one above of the family room and the one below that takes readers inside the Atlanta home's library.

 

The book includes insightful commentary on how Baker's design for each project freshly reinterprets historical style while maintaining a seamless and gracious transition between indoor and outdoor spaces.
