Apartamento architecture series
Out of stock
Limited edition of 250 box sets that compile the first three titles in Apartamento’s architecture series, which takes a look at some of our favourite homes around the world: The Walker House by RM Schindler; La Fábrica by Ricardo Bofill; and Kamala House by BV Doshi.
These are all first edition books, with the first two titles sold out in shops and online.
The Walker House, RM Schindler takes us to Los Angeles, the adopted home of Austrian-born American architect, RM Schindler, and tells the story of how the Walker House came into the possession of its current owner, journalist and modernist architecture and design geek Andrew Romano. It also features original photography by Ye Rin Mok.
La Fábrica, Ricardo Bofill transports readers to the fringe of Barcelona, deep into the former cement factory and monumental home of Catalan architect Ricardo Bofill. Jordi Labanda narrates an evening spent at the Bofill residence in his short story, while Nacho Alegre contributes original photography.
Kamala House, BV Doshi tours the home of a Pritzker Prize-winning architect who worked under Le Corbusier in Paris before returning to a newly independent India in the early ‘50s. There, he worked on civic and educational institutions, low-income housing, and his own family home, which he built in 1963. The house is documented with original photography by Quentin de Briey and texts by Durga Chew-Bose and BV Doshi himself.
