Review:

Bassenian/Lagoni is a new breed of residential architect....The delicate mix of artistic whimsy and a reverence for historical architecture influences differentiates and elevates their rich body of work. --Howard Englander, noted architecture and building industry commentator, in the Foreword to the book. I think these homes are dazzling. The superb photography, the lighting, the angles from which the rooms were shot. Every time I open the book, I feel happy, looking at such beauty. --Lucy Der Manuelian, Professor of Art History, Tufts University. Gorgeous! This is a consistently excellent body of work. It is by far the best example of this type of architect's book that I have seen. --Heather McCune, Editor-in-Chief, Professional Builder Magazine
