Synopsis

The New Old House presents 18 private historic homes, from North America to Europe, and traces the ingenious ways architects have revitalized and refreshed them for a new generation.



Most of the renovations occurred in the last decade, but all of the homes have origins reaching back into the past, in some cases hundreds of years. Projects and firms featured include Greenwich House, Allan Greenberg; Longbranch, Jim Olson; Astley Castle, Witherford Watson Mann; Hunsett Mill, Acme; Cotswolds House, Richard Found; plus more than a dozen others. These projects address such timely factors as sustainability, multiculturalism, preservation, and style, and demonstrate the unique beauty and elegance that comes from the interweaving of modernity and history.

An architecture and design journalist, Marc Kristal is a contributing editor at Dwell, a former editor of AIA/J, and has written for Metropolis, the New York Times, Architectural Digest, Elle Decor, and numerous other publications. Kristal has written, co-authored, or contributed to a dozen books, notably Re:Crafted: Interpretations of Craft in Contemporary Design (Monacelli, 2010)and Interiors and Immaterial World: Transparency in Architecture (Monacelli, 2011), and Magni Modernism (Abrams, 2013)
