Making houses that are liveable. "Family Houses" presents a compilation of examples of the emerging residential architecture, which are linked by the manner in which they propose innovative and experimental solutions. Refinement in the selection of finishes, restraint in the distribution of rooms, and pains taken in integrating these spaces into their surroundings represent just some of the skills exercised by their designers. Although each of the houses featured in this selection heads in a unique direction, stylistically speaking, they all surprise us technically and with the repertoire of sensations they provoke. In all of these houses, the architects have paid special attention to the dynamics that arise when different family members live together, and they have thus oriented their efforts towards finding a balance between designing for design's sake and making houses that are liveable.
