Icons of 20th Century Landscape Design - Katie Campbell

Frances Lincoln / —
The 29 landscape designs selected for this book have changed the way we look at designed outdoor spaces. They are examples of the ways in which 20th-century landscape designers have attempted to create a new style to reflect the modern age. All the landscapes still exist in some form and most can be visited. They range from Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fallingwater to Brenda Colville’s Eggborough Power Station, Ian Hamilton Finlay’s Little Sparta to Maya Lin’s Vietnam War Memorial, Derek Jarman’s Prospect Cottage to Charles Jencks’ garden of Cosmic Speculation.
Katie Campbell is the ideal guide and interpreter. She opens our eyes to the radical ideas, new materials and artistic intentions and achievements behind her chosen sites.

John Minshaw Designs - John Minshaw

Frances Lincoln / —
‘It is in its pared-down luxury, however, that the house has its edge. All the panelling, architraves, doors, windows and skirtings were custom-made for the building; new floors were laid in rich brown or bleached oak boards, with limestone used for the hallway and bathrooms; at the flick of a Lutron switch, mood lighting changes the atmosphere of each room; and furniture and mirrors are scaled up to look just right in the large spaces, such as the oversized ottoman and sofa in the living room. Although the house is sparsely furnished, the pieces are of an enviably high quality.’ The Times on John Minshaw’s award-winning Wimpole Street home. As an Architectural & Interior Design Practice, John Minshaw Designs has been designing and building private residences for over 30 years. At the Design & Decoration Awards in 2005/6, he won both ‘Designer of the Year’ and ‘Classical Residential Interior’. Minshaw says he came to interiors by default. But it is clear that his early training in fine art influences much of his work. «My style is to buy good antiques and design bespoke cabinetry, then put them into pared-down interiors» he says — a design ethic that is a neat contrast to the cliched froufrou swags and tails often associated with interior design. This book covers ten projects, spanning twenty years, offering a summary of Minshaw’s work.

Villa (+ DVD) - John Saladino

Frances Lincoln / —
John Saladino’s powerful new book, Villa, is nothing less than a master class in interior and garden design by one of the world’s most distinguished architectural designers. It focuses on the stone ruin in the California hills looking over the Pacific that he has painstakingly refashioned as his dream house. It shows how his principles and passions guided him through the five-year process of reconstruction, restoration and decoration of the house and its gardens. With the aid of groundplans, drawings, photographs of the house in the 1920s, as it looked when he first bought it and during reconstruction, the author traces the architectural work involved. Then, in a superbly illustrated tour of the house and grounds, he proves that he practices what he has preached for more than thirty years. He juxtaposes light and dark, old and new, classical and modern, monumental and miniscule, hard and soft, to create the serenely timeless interiors and gardens that are his hallmark. Included with the book is a DVD tour of the house and garden, with a commentary by the author.

The Self-Sustaining Garden - Peter Thompson

Frances Lincoln / —
The harder gardeners work, the more problems seem to multiply. But if we let them, plants can do much of the hard work for us. This remarkable book, first published in 1997 and now revised and reillustrated, shows how plants can be combined into self-governing communities to create naturalistic low maintenance gardens. The universal principles of ‘matrix’ gardens are explained, and illustrated with case studies showing detailed applications. Further chapters explore soil health, biological controls in the garden, pools and wetlands, shrubs and perennials, and how to pull it all together in a string self-sustaining design.
