A proponent of the slow architecture movement, Stephan Maria Lang designs homes that are mirrors of their inhabitants’ souls. Through this highly individualized approach, his work takes on a remarkable diversity. With one hundred full-color illustrations, this volume presents select projects by Lang from 2004 to 2011.
 
From the California Residence, which conveys the leisureliness of a holiday home on the American West Coast, to the lakefront Alpine Highway, for which Lang restored the surrounding land to its natural state, the homes in this book reveal thoughtful new facets at each turn, with charming hidden details, surprising vistas, interesting interplays of shadow and light, and the clever integration of landscape, garden, and interior decoration. Of course, the homes also change over time as they are inhabited—and that, argues Lang, is what allows them to radiate life.
 
An impressive pictorial introduction to Lang’s vintage-inspired state-of-the-art architectural work, Stephan Maria Lang will be of interest to scholars of design, architecture, and planning.
