Wright-sized houses : Frank Lloyd Wright's solutions for making small houses feel big by Diane Maddex( Book )

12 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 567 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Wright-Sized Houses: Frank Lloyd Wright's Solutions for Making Small Houses Feel Big is the first book to feature the small houses of this world-renowned architect. It presents a wealth of ideas for how to build or redesign a home to make it feel far more spacious and restful than a larger house. Diane Maddex outlines dozens of Wright's principles for making less seem like more: roofs that epitomize the sense of shelter, windows that capture the outdoors, materials that respect nature, open plans that create a relaxed lifestyle, built-ins that conserve space, ornament that grows naturally from the design. Profiles of ten small houses show how all of Wright's techniques combine to make even 1,200 square feet feel like a mansion
Bungalow nation by Diane Maddex( Book )

7 editions published between 2003 and 2010 in English and held by 422 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Offering stylish yet affordable housing for the average person, the bungalow took the nation by storm in the early 20th century, and was rediscovered in earnest in 1996 with the publication of the authors' American Bungalow Style. That book, the first lavishly illustrated showcase of bungalows, reminded us all of the seductive appeal that had made these charming little homes so popular. This much-anticipated follow-up book takes readers into the living rooms, bedrooms, kitchens, and baths of the best and most characteristic bungalows from five American neighborhoods where this housing type has flourished: Washington, DC, Chicago, Seattle, Minneapolis-St. Paul, and Pasadena. Bungalows, while modestly sized, are known for their integrity of design and craftsmanship, and their shape lends itself to a variety of stylistic treatments, from Colonial Revival to Craftsman to Tudor, all displayed in Bungalow Nation.--From publisher description

Alden B. Dow : midwestern modern by Diane Maddex( Book )

6 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 278 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Alden Dow was a midwesterner by birth, but he left a legacy national in nature. Active from the early 1930s through the late 1970s, he designed some six hundred projects - often daringly modern houses and religious buildings, schools and colleges, business and civic structures, and even a new town in Texas. Dow changed the face of his hometown of Midland, Michigan, leaving it more than one hundred houses, offices and plants for The Dow Chemical Company, churches, banks, schools, and recreational structures." "Nowhere is Dow's talent more evident than in his Home and Studio in Midland, a National Historic Landmark. Alden B. Dow: Midwestern Modern tells the story of both this exceptional residence and the architect who spent a half century developing his vision of a more humane way of building."--Jacket
