Item description for City Houses by Wim Pauwels...

Living in the city offers a series of advantages: public transport, proximity to amenities, schools and work places, museums, sports centres, restaurants, etc. The city attracts an increasing number of young people, as well as the elders who return after having lived in the countryside or quiet suburbs for decades. This book presents a series of recently renovated and remodelled urban residences: majestic master houses that are restored to their original glory, as well as contemporary island houses, exclusive villas, and new apartments, lofts and penthouses. A similarity lies in this range of diversified works: the inspiration of architects, interior designers and the residents into a spatial unity, serenity and quality of life that are reflected in the structure of each house, and in the selection of materials and colours. This publication serves as a source of inspiration for those who currently reside in the city, or are aspiring to purchase or rent a house to soak in the glorious sights a

Reviews - What do customers think about City Houses?

Decent, but a Little Underwhelming  Jul 29, 2008
City Houses by Wim Pauwels is a rather surprisingly niche book, being an exhibition of only modern Belgian interior home decoration. I have to admit I have a mostly passing / amateurish interest in architecture and that I was expecting a much more broad scope when I bought this book.

The cover picture is indicative of about 50% of the pictures you'll find in the book, in that they are good photos of clean cut, modern, nice houses that actually seem comfortable and livable and are pleasing to look at. The other 50% of the pictures however were a little too much "artiste" for me and were homes that looked starkly cold, too minimalist, or just ugly. Other things that struck me is that there is not too much diversity of stylistic variations in the book in that the use of materials, furniture, wall art / sculpture and colors all seem both restricted / repetitive and un-inspired. Another surprise was how many of the homes had clearly shoddy construction. Overall this leaves an underwhelming sense looking at the entire book.

There are some very nice rooms in the book but they are a bit too few and far between and too uniform in creative style to make it worthwhile for those with just an amateurish interest in the subject like me. I could only really recommend it for professional architects and interior designers with an already extensive library who could add a niche volume on Belgian modern.
