Product Details


“While many architecture firms curtail the residential side of their practices to take on more commercial and institutional commissions, AD100 stalwart Robert A.M. Stern Architects (RAMSA) has maintained an enduring commitment to houses. From a Malibu compound modeled on a Mediterranean hill town to a Shingle Style manse in the Hamptons, their work displays not only a mastery of historical styles but also real dexterity in marshaling traditional idioms to the beat of the contemporary world.” 
Architectural Digest

“The volume tours readers through fifteen houses completed by the RAMSA partners over the last decade. Stylistically diverse, historically informed, contextually appropriate, and functionally up to the moment, each offers its own lesson in timelessness.” —New York Spaces

“Most people will never own a home by Robert A.M. Stern. Most people will never even see a home by Stern, the dean of the Yale School of Architecture and a favorite architect of the tasteful privileged. His houses, all of them extravagantly detailed and rooted in the architecture of centuries past, are hidden behind high hedged or at the ends of long driveways in places like Montecito, East Hampton, Martha’s Vineyard and Kiawah Island. But now there is a bit of democratization going on, at least in how Stern’s houses are presented.” —1st Dibs Introspective
