Item description for Vacation: 50 Great Holiday Homes (Architecture) by Images Publishing Group...

This book celebrates the holiday home, traditionally a place of rest, relaxation and escape from the pressures of the 'real' world. Its many incarnations include beach shacks, mountain-top chalets, country estates, ranches and hobby farms, lakeside villas and isolated cabins. The unique styles reflect their owners' very personal approaches to what it means to be 'on vacation'. The architecture of holiday homes reveals the shift in lifestyle that defines a vacation; architects are required to work closely with their clients to achieve just the right spirit. The results of this collaboration can be breathtaking.

Reviews - What do customers think about Vacation: 50 Great Holiday Homes (Architecture)?

Just okay....  Oct 29, 2007
My biggest quibble with this book is that most of the houses did not seem like vacation homes at all; rather, they're these huge, gargantuan mansions that most of us would die to live in full time.... I guess my perception of vacation homes is that they're a little smaller than one's "regular" house, more gem-like, and maybe some of the innovative spatial efficiencies are what make the house cool and worth documenting. So if that's what you're looking for (which I was) then this book is definitely not for you. If you're just looking for a book with pretty pictures in it you'll be better off, although as with most of these types of publications a bunch of the bigger photos were really grainy and just not of very good quality.
