Covers the architecture and interior design of private mansions around the world.
Past centuries have seen well-to-do citizens and other dignitaries commission prestigious private mansions in large cities, often built along tree-lined boulevards.
From the nineteenth century, many avenues were built as a perfectly straight, broad axis between stately mansions with classic facades, in line with the architectural model that had been introduced by Ilaussmann in Paris.
Behind these facades very opulent decor was often concealed, with features such as monumental marble fireplaces, oak parquet, natural-stone floors and ornamented stuccowork.
In the twenty-first century, these exclusive mansions are a valuable testament to our rich architectural history.
However, the accounts in this book also demonstrate that these mansions have lost none of their relevance in the modern world: contemporary architects and interior specialists are restoring these houses in a way that is full of respect for the authentic architectural elements, but makes the necessary concessions to the modern way of life. This leads to a constant and fascinating interaction between old and new.
