A thought-provoking architectural monograph on one of the most renowned and original classicist practices today. Quinlan and Francis Terry Architects is a British firm that specializes in new Classical architecture. Their work is a delightful expression—in plaster and marble, in brick and wood, in stone—of exuberant timelessness, where fluted columns rise beside doorways to explode in Corinthian capitals of exquisite craftsmanship and structural integrity. Throughout the work, attention to detail, to craftsmanship, and to reasoned proportions is apparent.Quinlan Terry is at home in every traditional style, from Classical Greek and Roman to the many forms of Gothic and Renaissance. Terry’s son and partner, Francis, is recognized as a brilliant talent in his own right and is as highly regarded for his thoughtful design as for his breathtaking architectural drawings. Together, the duo are at the heart of a resurgent interest in an architecture and design that is both livable and inspiring. This book features the firm’s work from 2005 to 2015, and includes Kilboy, a country house in County Tipperary, Ireland; Kingsham Farm in Sussex, England; and ongoing work, such as Locuston Estate in Kentucky. It also showcases more than forty master drawings by Francis Terry, renderings that are at once beautiful and expressive of one of the highest aims of architecture—they elevate the soul—much like the houses and spaces built by this extraordinary firm.
