In addition to an incredible collection of outstanding photographs of the House of Light, this book tells the story of how this project proceeded from spatial criteria to conceptual design and final realization. It also tells the story of how Peter and Kay Nosler progressed from a wonderful contemporized craftsman-style home that they built in the ’90s and moving forward to a notable contemporary design. As one writer about the house put it: “Label it magical.”
Like many American cities residential neighborhoods are often encountered where there is house after house, new or old, that embodies very traditional design ideas. So, here is an example in a traditional neighborhood with small lots and a striking contemporary house appears. Of course some of the neighbors are aghast and others are delighted. And a movement has begun. In the multi-block neighborhood where the House of Light was the first there are now three more contemporary homes. Diversity is truly exciting.
