Am really enjoying this take on "A Pattern Language" principles. It is so much easier to understand than the original, heavy text (especially since I was trying to read it myself, not taking a college course). Patterns of Home, in contrast, is distilled--one doesn't have to figure EVERYthing out, just the key principles that have filtered to the top over time and use. And it is well explained with illustrations to support. I'm a visual learner, so the original's predominance of long wordy paragraphs of explanation were quite cumbersome for me. Patterns of Home is written for architects, and particularly for residential buildings, but I am quite able to translate the ideas to landscape design, which is what I do. I feel like the world of "A Pattern Language" has been re-opened to me, and I'm eating it up! I've gone back to the original and am using that now, more, again too.

Just so you understand where I'm coming from: I'm a landscape designer by trade, I do tend to pick up spacial design principles quickly, and I'm a bit of a design nerd.
But I do think this "ten essentials" would be helpful to any lay person contemplating the design of their own home. Maybe even their landscape as well. The same principles really do apply. That's the great beauty of these timeless ideas.

This is a pleasant alternative to the developers' narrow selection. So dream a little. Look at examples from different parts of the U.S., using breezeways, unique placements of stairs, entry doors, and auto parking. See how different architects dealt with lot shape, natural features (like streams), and homes built on a sloping lot.
If you are fascinated by a home around a courtyard, Pages 55-71 discuss indoor/outdoor living through use of large doors, plantings, and patios. Besides the numerous photos, there are planviews of the room arrangements. Some examples are remodels which preserve a historic look.
Be aware that the dramatic ceilings, window views, or walkways can not be grafted onto standard designs. They require detailed integration with A/C, wiring, insulation, and structural members to avoid contractor misunderstandings.
I agree with other reviewers that Susanka communicates better.

This book takes the main concepts in A Pattern Language and fleshes them out, illustrating them with concrete examples and explanations, and demonstating how they can work in a residential home. Some of the themes are quite practical, like capturing light and creating indoor and outdoor rooms, while others are more abstract and theoretical, like the concept of being able to look out from a protected space. All of the principles are based on human psychology and why we inherently like and feel comfortable in some places and not in others, which makes Patterns of Home much more interesting than a typical architecture book. It is a great guide for anyone that wants to design their own house or is interested in vernacular architecture in general. The photos and diagrams are great, and haven't been recycled from other Taunton Press books, which was a nice surprise. I found Patterns of Home very easy to follow and understand as it has a very organized layout that ties all the chapters and their themes together, making it an easy read in addition to everything else.

this is an excellent update suitable for the lay person when considering what factors attribute long lasting effect in designing and building a new home.. I was super excited to find this as I used Pattern Language, written by some of the same architect authors 40 years ago when I built my dream home- and this update distilled the 200 plus patterns described in that tome down to a very manageable ten!!! Now I am using this Patterns of Home book to build my 'age in place' retirement home. Kudos!!

I am a huge fan of Christopher Alexander's The Timeless Way of Building and I ordered this book without knowing that it was written by several of his disciples. It was a pleasant surprise when I discovered that this book brings to life Alexander's fundamental premise that living spaces can be created when positive patterns are repeated. Admittedly, I'm often sucked in by many books with great pictures and I never really get down to reading the text from cover to cover. This book is different. Not only is there wonderful visual reference, but the copy does a thorough job of explaining the reasoning behind the architectural decisions. I love this book.

I'm a graduate student in Building Science and this is a required text for one of my drafting courses. My presumption had been that this, like most books chosen for class room teaching, would be less than exciting. I'm glad to say I was very wrong. I haven't read it all the way through yet, but will before this semester ends and I look forward to it.

If you're an experienced designer, this book may not have much to offer, but if you're a student just starting designing, you should be very inspired by it. This early in the semester, I've only read the first 4 chapters but have gained a lot of insight and have already been able to incorporate most of it into the few designs I've had to do for class so far, especially in terms of the importance of outdoor spaces - too often completely overlooked in home designs! I can hardly wait to get through "Flow Through Rooms" and "Places in Between".

I have a good friend who has been designing "green" house for the past several years and he told me he re-reads "Patterns of Home" on a regular basis because it's so inspiring. You won't be disappointed.

This book provides valuable informaion for those who want to pursue the perfectly built and positioned home. The concepts are fasinating and could be somewhat easy to put into pratice, however, the author uses large, VERY expensivly built homes leaving the impression that only the very wealthy can afford such superior design. This is unfortunate. I do believe that some the most basic concepts can be put into play in most homes it would just take some imagination and determination.
