Reviews - What do customers think about Terrace Design (Designfocus)?

Some Dramatic Pictures Give Good Ideas of What Can be Done  Aug 22, 2005
When i first looked at this book I was attracted by the front cover photograph which looks like the corner of an untra modern house and a terrace overlooking a cliff and ocean. Pretty, but not really applicable to the desert scene where I live.

Looking inside I realized that their definition of terrace is really something like a transitional area, not enclosed in the house, but closely associated with and connecting the house to the outside.

Then I realized that this is an concept about my house that I had been thinking about for some time. A place to sit, talk, relax a bit in the cool of the evening. Kind of like what we used to do on grandmothers porch.

The houses here are broken down into three general categories:

Urban, some of which are more like the little garden areas in back of houses/restaurants in city centers like New York or London.

Countryside, where some striking scenes are shown even with flat farm or desert landscapes. We think of terraces being on the side of a hill with an expansive view. But here are some very interesting ones that are not.

Finally there are Seaside Terraces, where indeed there are some dramatic pictures.

The book certainly gave me some ideas about what I'm going to do in my front yard.
A visually impressive selection of terraces for homes set in rural, seaside, and urban locations  Aug 11, 2005
A true mark of elegant luxury in today's upscale homes that afford a view is the creation of a terrace that opens the living space out into the exterior of the dwelling and thereby creating a direct contact with nature and/or the urban community. Enhanced with more than 140 spectacular photographs of diverse terrace designs ranging from those with or without a roofed enclosure, some with gardens, others with a solarium, Terrace Design offers a visually impressive selection of terraces for homes set in rural, seaside, and urban locations. Wither for simple browsing or for providing concrete ideas for emulation, Terrace Design is a welcome and highly recommended addition to any professional, academic, or community library Architectural Studies reference collection.
