March 01, 2004

Sarah Susanka, author of the The Not So Big House, looks at space, light and order, which she collectively dubs "the architect's toolbox," in Home by Design (256 pages). Space topics include entryways, ceiling heights, and "openability" (opening spaces or closing them from one another).

The light section examines intensity and concentration, reflective surfaces and window positioning. The order section addresses pattern and geometry, alignment, rhythm, structure and focal points.
