House, Home, Heart: Artistry and Craftsmanship in the Architecture of Shope Reno Wharton is the first monograph to showcase the spectacular work of the prestigious architectural firm that continues to redefine modern architecture within a context of traditional sensibilities. The results are innovative, memorable, and timeless structures that know no bounds. Shope Reno Wharton treats every project of theirs as a true work of art, closely considering elements of proportion and scale, the interplay between light and shadow, the effects of color, texture, and detail, and of course, the treatment of form. These are the building blocks of a craft aimed at producing both aesthetic, contextual, and functional houses that are meant to be experienced.
