A deluxe new monograph that presents a selection of elegantly sumptuous houses by renowned architect Thomas Kligerman.

Over the past forty years, Thomas Kligerman has been immersed in the history of residential architecture, weaving together sources from English and European traditions with the American vernacular, particularly the puebloan style of the Southwest and the shingle style that has prevailed along the East Coast since the late nineteenth century. A staple on the AD100 list, Kligerman has woven together these strands of domestic architecture to create his own American aesthetic. Shingle and Stone: Thomas Kligerman Houses is a full-career monograph that features a selection of inspiring residences that highlight the evolution of his architectural thinking.

Shingle and Stone presents thirteen major highlights from Kligerman’s portfolio, including three projects currently in design. The featured projects are all set in extraordinarily beautiful natural landscapes, from the coasts of Martha’s Vineyard and the Hamptons, to the forests of South Carolina’s Blue Ridge Mountains and the Pacific Northwest, showcasing the depth and breadth of the architect’s oeuvre. Illustrated with more than 200 spectacular photographs of interiors and exteriors alongside plans, renderings, and sketches that reveal the design process, this new book will immerse readers in the powerfully nuanced language of Kligerman’s architectural vision.

In the architect’s own words, exceptional architecture combines existing styles in order to “move the needle forward,” and this new monograph presents luxurious single-family homes that do exactly that. Written in collaboration with the celebrated design editor Mitchell Owens, Shingle and Stone is an inspirational architectural collection that presents the contemporary traditional design for which Kligerman is known. Beautifully packaged with a vellum jacket over a linen case silkscreened with one of Kligerman’s own hand-drawn sketches, this is the ideal book for both architects and design enthusiasts, and is sure to sit beautifully on any bookshelf, desk, or coffee table.
