Summary
Since Seth Stein founded his practice in 1990, he has gained an international reputation and numerous awards for creating extraordinary buildings, both residential and commercial. From new-built coastal retreats to revitalised historic urban townhouses and palazzos, his architecture is always both striking and elegant: sculptural and flowing in form, light-filled, with a mastery of materials and exquisite detailing. There is a strong sense of place in his projects, as a country house curves around the contours of a ridge, making the most of its vantage over the sea, or a futuristic urban interior is juxtaposed within an elegant listed structure, revitalising it for contemporary living. Running through the practice's work is a deceptive simplicity, an exciting and innovative use of new building methods and materials, along with an intrinsic environmental sustainability. This monograph aims not only to bring together the full range of Seth Stein Architects' projects for the first time, but in doing so, to offer insights into the practice's ethos and design processes, setting them within context and exploring key issues and themes
