    How do our minds work when we design? How do we organise and assimilate information, create and evaluate options, and make decisions? These questions have fascinated and absorbed architect and sculptor Richard Bertman (FAIA) since his graduate school days. Now, after a 40-year career, Bertman has used the design of a vacation house as an experiment to explore these questions. The result, documented in The Design Process and the Art of the Single Family Home, is a fascinating and revealing insight into the creative process. With floor plans, notes, hand-drawn sketches and full-colour photography Bertman charts each stage of the design process, questioning and examining why certain decisions are made, how problems are solved, and generally exploring the processes involved in creative thinking.

    Stuart Harrison writes about residential architecture again, this time exploring how the constraints of space often have the most innovative results. With the largest houses in the world and ever-increasing suburban sprawl, we need to consider building smaller and more efficient homes. By showcasing 45 examples of space-challenging housing, including (as the title suggests) a 46 sq m empty car park in Surry Hills, Sydney, which became a 5-storey 165 sq m dwelling with a roof top garden. This exciting collection of homes demonstrates that bigger is not necessarily better.

    France is the world's style destination, and photographer Sebastien Siraudeau has scoured the country to uncover eighty of its most charming boutique guest houses, each rich in the design details that epitomize French style. Thirty of these locations are featured in individual chapters with photographs highlighting their particular flair from a trompe loeil wall mural, to a damask upholstered chaise longue, or a simple row of ocean-polished stones. Those seeking inspiration for their own home will find this book rich in ideas for a wide variety of styles. Elegant crystal chandeliers may take center stage in one room, but a simple wooden bench, worn smooth with centuries of use, can be just as captivating in another. Gently faded neutrals create a quiet harmony in one setting, while another is alive with splashes of vivid color. Sleek and modern or cozy and rustic, each of these hand-picked settings is as inviting as a deep leather armchair. Organized thematically, these enticing destinations will inspire the reader to recreate the same atmospheric interiors at home. This handsome volume includes a black book of the best design destinations the country has to offer from chateaux, country manors, and farmhouses, to urban apartments, hotels, and B&Bs. A practical guide grouped by region includes price indicators and online tourist information.
