|aAntonia Edwards' turns her sights to the homes themselves in this breathtaking selection of unique buildings and interiors. Divided into three sections the book offers vibrant photographs and fascinating descriptions of its subjects. Projects in the first chapter include environmentalist Peter Bahouth's highly coveted three-unit tree house nestled in the Atlanta woods and the Love Art Studio in Phuket, Thailand, which is constructed entirely from bits of driftwood. The second section features a traditional Slovenian barn, rescued from disrepair and converted into a light-filled holiday home with beautiful Alpine views, and a Milanese apartment furnished with striking vintage finds. The third part takes readers from Melbourne to Madrid, Tribeca to the English countryside, showcasing a 7,500 square-foot reservoir converted into a trendy modern residence and a former cement factory that has found new life as architect Ricardo Bofill's famed studio and living space.
Antonia Edwards founded her blog “Upcyclist” in 2011. In 2015 she was named by the Evening Standard as one of London's most influential people. Her previous book is Upcyclist: Reclaimed and Remade Furniture, Lighting and Interiors (Prestel).
