Peter Pennoyer Architects, Book Review... (Via Made By Girl)

Looking for a book about apartments, townhomes and country houses? Well, I received this book from Vendome Press yesterday and was pretty impressed. The book is titled,  "Peter Pennoyer Architects" and has 244 pages of colorful, detailed architecture. Peter Pennoyer is an American architect whose home designs seem to have existed forever....meaning they are unique & classical....a TIMELESS design.

 I will NOW add this book to MY growing COLLECTION of design books where it will fit perfectly....

The book is by Anne Walker and it explores 20 of the firm's projects. All impressively diverse, ranging from a triplex on NEW YORK'S fifth avenue, to a farmhouse in the Virgina countryside. While looking through the book, I found that MY absolute FAVORITE was the Park Avenue apartment. (pictured above & below)
