Though based on the past, the residences designed by Shope Reno Wharton Architecture are in no way bound by tradition. The way people live today is very different from the way they lived 100 years ago, and architecture has become much more inviting to that lifestyle, explains Bernard Wharton. We like houses that reflect a sense of casualness in an ordered way, yet that have a formality when needed. With a foreword written by Pulitzer Prize winner and architecture critic Paul Goldberger, and over 300 pages of stunning photography and complete site and floor plans, House, Home, Heart is as impressive and monumental as the work it displays.
