The greatest challenge in designing homes is negotiating the delicate balance between aesthetics and the personal desires of the occupants; this aspect is discussed in this Taschen The Architect's Home book. While it’s important for the structure to reflect the vision and style of the architect, the client must ultimately feel at home beneath the roof. It is particularly interesting, therefore, to examine the homes that architects create for themselves. If houses reflect their owners’ personalities, then architects’ own homes are like autobiographies. Location, layout, style, lighting, artwork, furnishings—every detail adds color to the story. Each of these dwellings, presented A-Z by architect, speaks more about its designer than any other building possibly could.

About the author: Gennaro Postiglione studied architecture and completed post-doctoral studies in industrial design in Naples. He has been a visiting lecturer and professor in other countries and since 1998 has been teaching design in the department of Interior Design at Milan Politecnico. His research work focuses on interior design and on the relationship between architecture, culture and current events.
