'Purpose Built Homes' presents a fascinating collection of houses that were custom designed for a very particular purpose - to showcase an object such as a vintage car, a high-powered telescope, a natural site formation or water feature - or to accommodate specialised spaces or needs, such as an art gallery, a showroom, recording studio, performance space, workshop, home theatre, exercise facilities or universal access. The need for this book stems from the current trend of home builders looking for house designs that embrace not only a comfortable living environment but also productive, technologically equipped and adaptable spaces for work, creativity and leisure. Today, many prospective home builders are also considering current or future accessibility needs, which adds value to their homes and ensures they can be lived in long-term. 'Purpose Built Homes' is a compendium of highly unique houses where the design was driven by the owner's particular passion or requirements. For example, one of the houses included was built for a doctor with a love of flying and a pilot's licence. The house was designed specifically around housing her private plane, and is sited next to an airstrip. Featuring detailed plans, diagrams and photography, this book offers inspiration and practical details on how to seamlessly incorporate specialised spaces for work, creativity and leisure into otherwise fully functioning and visually stunning family homes. The project locations range from Australia and New Zealand to Europe, North America and Asia.
