Item description for In Detail: Interior Spaces: Space, Light, Material by Christian Schittich...
From the meditative ambience of a purist devotional room to the colourful, organic forms of shop furnishings, the design of an interior space influences its atmosphere and lends a specific character. Together with the features of the room itself and the lighting, the materials used, their surfaces, textures, and colourings help determine the general effect of the interior. In the last few years there has been a growing willingness on the part of designers to experiment with colours and designs, and this book will present a wide range of international examples which reveal the sheer diversity of possibilities when planning interiors. This publication is the third volume in the series "in DETAIL" and will explore the various aspects of design with particular reference to the use of space and materials; carefully selected examples will highlight their aesthetic qualities and potential applications. All plans and drawings of interiors and furnishings have been carefully researched and drawn by the staff of DETAIL. Selected authors discuss the broad spectrum of tasks issues which emerge when dealing with interiors and document their solutions.

Great Book Oct 12, 2007
Very informative and gives a clear precise description of varying types on renovation and adaptive reuse.
best volume in the best detail architecture book series available Aug 25, 2007
This book is part of a deliriously excellent series of Birkhauser's In Detail collection, a series of books emphasizing and celebrating the importance of architectural details and the susbsequent spatial magic that emerges from the vigilant attention to design craft. Feast on the International wisdom; it's like architectural health food.
great source Aug 21, 2007
The book was exactly as I expected, high quality, detailed explanations in the Caliber of detail magazine. I will defiantly be purchasing the other books in this series.
Sometimes opaque, but great projects Jan 5, 2007
I found the essays on simple construction to be variable in quality...The chapters on wood and steel either suffered in translation or were student composition exercises to begin with. The projects illustrated, however, are of uniformly high quality, and are documented with Detail's typical precision. For an American architect, many of the projects using wood construction will be eye openers. The stone and clay construction projects are wonderful for daydreaming about a different building culture in this country. Well worth it for the photos and drawings.
a very informative architectural detail review on residential Jul 10, 2006
The book describes simple and neat residential building design in detail , shape, and material. The book should be applicable to architects or designers who aspire to work in modernism or minimalism on housing and who desire to improve the residential detil design to be more insighfully clean and blight. As well, the analysis from the publication could be developed to function in other architecture types.
