Item description for The New Classicists: Appleton & Associates, Inc. Architects (New Classicists) by Images Publishing Group...

The design work of Marc Appleton's practice is a collaborative process with its clients, inspired by and responsive to their specific desires and needs. Frequently, it draws upon the time-honoured traditions of vernacular architecture, subtly reinterpreting them to evoke a presence of the past. The firm strives to avoid a repetitiously personalised style and is committed to the idea that architecture is a craft rather than an art, a process rather than an object. Appleton agrees with fellow Californian architect William Wurste's view that architecture is for people 'the picture frame, and not the picture'. Also available in the series: William T.

Reviews - What do customers think about The New Classicists: Appleton & Associates, Inc. Architects (New Classicists)?

Finally!  Mar 8, 2008
From the Firm Profile:
Appleton & Associates strives to avoid a repetitiously personalized style and the self-conciousness of "signature" design. It is a firm committed to the idea that architecture is principally a craft rather than an art, and a process rather than an object.

Appleton & Associates long awaited book is everything I hoped it would be. After following their excellent traditional home designs in Architectural Digest for so many years, it is gratifying that this book release of their work does not disappoint.

The homes are inspired by italian and french farmhomes, New England shingle style homes, California spanish colonial courtyard houses, Rocky mountain rustic barns, English Georgian revival homes, Tuscan villas, arts and crafts homes and California ranch houses.

Each of the fifteen homes featured include pages of photos in addition to floor plans and, many times, elevation drawings too. It succeeds as a coffee table book and yet it is so much more.

It would have been great to see "Villa Pacifica" in this book, since it served as my introduction to the work of Appleton & Associates in the pages of Architectural Digest. But it is tantalizingly planned as a stand alone release. I was likewise hoping to see San Ysidro Ranch, but that will just have to wait for the next book.
