Distillations: the Architecture of Margaret McCurry - Hardcover Book
In this handsome coffee table book, Margaret McCurry describes her design concepts and gives a glimpse into the deeper thought process behind her homes and how they have become distillations of American architecture.
An excerpt from Distillations: "This new Wisconsin retreat has provided an interesting spatial and organizational challenge given the client's varied program that includes many guest rooms, bunkrooms, an indoor pool and separate guest house/garage as well as both indoor and outdoor gathering spaces. McCurry sited the elements of the house and guest house to create a pinwheel off of an open clearing in the forest whereby the program spaces became the spokes of the wheel connected by an interior rim of circulation, which also provides entry points into the house and axial views towards the lake. This scale reducing scheme also provides distance between the guest rooms, bunkrooms and the master suite so that privacy is maintained."
"Margaret McCurry...is the Jane Austen of architects. She can create a small world out of a small place, a microcosm in a two inch piece of ivory." —Architectural Digest
