Poetry of Place THE NEW ARCHITECTURE AND INTERIORS OF M c ALPINE BOBBY M c ALPINE WRITTEN WITH SUSAN SULLY

An appealing approach to creating dwellings blending vernacular styles, fine craftsmanship, and indigenous materials. This volume features the recent projects of McALPINE, one of the country’s most highly respected architecture and interior design firms, renowned for its timeless houses exemplifying the charm and elegance of traditional and vernacular English, American, and European styles blended with a modern sensibility. Following from their first book, The Home Within Us, this book profiles twenty stunning projects, from a stone tower folly standing in the gardens of a Tudorstyle house to a humble yet elegant wooden lakeside retreat. Through his poetic voice, Bobby McAlpine narrates the story of each residence, pointing out its unique qualities. Featured are an exotic Florida Panhandle beach house; a Tuscan-style horse farm; a rambling Colonial Revival compound; and a miniature European manor house, among others. These dwellings are classically understated and welcoming. With its gorgeous photography of inspiring interiors and exteriors, Poetry of Place will appeal to those interested in design romancing the past. Bobby McAlpine founded his thirty-five-year-old firm in Montgomery, Alabama, now with additional locations in New York, Atlanta, and Nashville. McALPINE works in partnership with architects Greg Tankersley, Chris Tippett, John Sease, and David Baker, and interior designers Susan Ferrier and Ray Booth. The firm’s portfolio includes residential buildings throughout the United States, as well as Mexico and the Caribbean. Their work is regularly featured in shelter magazines. Susan Sully is a renowned architecture expert who has authored numerous books, including Bobby McAlpine’s The Home Within Us.
