Item description for Bungalows and Country Residences by Alexander Briggs Robert...
"A Bungalow is a little country house - a homely, cosy place . with the plan so arranged as to ensure complete comfort, with a feeling of rusticity and ease." As the Arts and Crafts movement of the late 19th century offered the dream of exchanging the squalor and ugliness of cities for a more relaxed, aesthetically pleasing lifestyle, architect Robert Alexander 'Bungalow' Briggs was the leading proponent of a new type of housing embodying the movement's ideals. His 1891 book Bungalows and Country Residences set a pioneering template for the house that has become a much-loved part of neighbourhoods from Surrey to South Africa. This reprint of the expanded 1901 edition features 47 varied designs for real buildings, with detailed line drawings and floor plans accompanied by notes on layout and construction. Bungalows and Country Residences is a fascinating and inspiring look into the creative designs of a man lauded by architects, historians and bungalow fans alike.
