Todd Saunders New Northern Houses

Norway-based Canadian architect Todd Saunders’ unique approach, set in some of the most remote locations on earth, splices modern sculptural forms with a deeply rooted respect for nature, most famously in his Fogo Island Hotel and artists’ studios in Newfoundland. Rather than imposing themselves upon the countryside and coast, Saunders’ residential buildings seek a sensitive accommodation with the topography and the flora, fauna and treescapes of the landscapes they inhabit. This is the first book to focus on Saunders’ houses and features eleven of his most recent and iconic projects across Scandinavia and Canada, many of which are in are stunning landscapes. Featuring a wealth of inspiring exterior and Nordic-style interior shots, each house is illustrated with photography specially commissioned for the book and are accompanied by texts written by Dominic Bradbury in close collaboration with the architect. Sections on process and ways of working, as well as Saunders’ inspirations and design philosophy are interwoven in separate sections, which include drawings, plans and photography.

The Secret Life of the Modern House The Evolution of the Way We Live Now


* * *

‘Informative and entertaining, this publication is a feast for the eyes, while also thought provoking, and offers excellent inspiration for daydreaming about what makes the perfect, modern house.’ Wallpaper

‘A fascinating selection of innovative homes….this is a thoughtful journey through the evolution of domestic architecture.’ Sunday Express

Over the last century the way that we live at home has changed dramatically. Nothing short of a design revolution has transformed our houses and the spaces within them – moving from traditional patterns of living all the way through to an era of more fluid, open-plan and modern styles. Whether we live in a new home or a period house, our spaces will have been shaped one way or another by the pioneering Modernists and Mid-century architects and designers who argued for a fresh way of life.

Architectural and design writer Dominic Bradbury charts the course of this voyage all the way from the late 19th century through to the houses of today in this ground-breaking book. Over nineteen thematic chapters, he explains the way our houses have been reinvented, while taking in – along the way – the giants of Art Deco, influential Modernists including Le Corbusier and Frank Lloyd Wright, as well as post-war innovators such as Eero Saarinen and Philip Johnson. Taking us from the 20th to the 21st century, Bradbury explores the progress of ‘modernity’ itself and reveals the secret history of our very own homes.
