Item description for Homes for the Country by Alexander Briggs Robert...
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. Following the success of his 1891 book Bungalows and Country Residences, in 1909 Briggs published Homes for the Country, aiming to inspire "that numerous class who contemplate building a house but who are unable to decide in what form their ideas may be carried out". This remastered edition features Briggs' varied designs for light, spacious dwellings. Detailed line drawings and floor plans are accompanied by notes on layout and construction. Homes for the Country is a fascinating and inspiring look into the creative mind of a man lauded by architects, historians and designers alike.
