An architect or homeowner who is tackling a project is confronted with thousands of new styles and materials to consider when designing, renovating or building a house. However, a project in an urban setting has additional considerations. It must take into account limited lot size, height restrictions, parking, proximity to employment and recreation, and in many cases, neighborhood aesthetic. Thanks to the creativity of outstanding architects and designers, as well as exciting innovations in technology and construction, there is an unprecedented number of options.

202 Outstanding City House Ideas is packed with ideas for creating that dream city home. It is illustrated with more than 600 photographs and 200 detailed floor plans of a selection of city houses from every continent. Each house is presented over several double-page spreads of descriptive text, color and black and white photographs, house plans and elevations, plus details on location, architect and date of construction. A directory of architect and designer contact information, including websites, rounds out this comprehensive resource.

As more people move into cities, the imagination is called upon to come up with new and exciting residential design. From conventional to contemporary to futuristic, 202 Outstanding City House Ideas shows how the world's best urban residential architecture is responding, whether in New York City, Sao Paolo, or Sydney. The 202 houses hold thousands of ideas, making this a valuable resource for anyone planning to build or remodel a house in an urban or dense neighborhood. For those who simply enjoy architecture and design, it is an ideal browsing selection.
