BUY The Design Guide magazine issue #08 – The Fundamentals of Architecture
Quality, adaptability and sustainability, all of which affect costs, too, are the new drivers for house design – by lowering maintenance, alterations and energy bills over the lifetime of a building.
In this issue, we return to the fundamentals of house design and how those early decisions affect the ‘fitness’ of a project over the long term. Architects discuss project constraints and opportunities – site and context, brief and budget, climate and construction – and explain their design response with essays, drawings, analyses and photographs. We have chosen projects and topics to stimulate thinking and insight for your building project.
It showcases five absolutely gorgeous homes from the Pacific Rim, NZ local Architecture Awards, and more. This is a truely fantastic edition (well, we think so anyway), so get your copy here for just $12.95 including postage.
