From the preeminent classical architecture firm in the US, the latest apartments, townhouses, and country houses, with interiors by leading designers

Whether a brand-new country estate, a renovation of a triplex penthouse apartment, or a merging of two townhouses into one, each of the 20 projects in this sumptuously illustrated volume bears the hallmarks of Peter Pennoyer Architects’ work: skillful adaptation of the principles of classical architecture, sophisticated use of details and materials, and insistence on meticulous craftsmanship, resulting in a balance between comfort, beauty, and luxury. The firm’s architects worked with exceptional interior designers, including Katie Ridder, Miles Redd, Steven Gambrel, and Jacques Grange, to create these residences, and though all are grounded in the classical tradition, each is singularly tailored to its location and the individual taste of the client. With an authoritative text by architectural historian Anne Walker and hundreds of specially commissioned photographs, site plans, and floor plans throughout, Peter Pennoyer Architects: City and Country showcases residential architecture at its finest.
