Jul 20 2012 8:00 pm
Meet architects and co-authors Andrew B. Cogar and Kevin P. Clark for a discussion and slideshow of images of some of the homes featured in Coming Home: The Southern Vernacular House. Beautifully photographed, the book offers readers a wide range of southern design inspiration and a look how new homes can be designed and built with defined reminiscence to the past. How is Florida architecture being influenced by the popular vernacular style and historic precedent?
Every home pictured and described in the book showcases meticulously designed exteriors and interiors with unified elements, resulting in a display of facades that are pleasing from all vantage points and floor plans that reflect the various homeowners’ unique lifestyles. Additionally, the book’s published residences, buildings and neighborhoods were designed indicative of the South’s thematic and beloved style.
