- An exploration and celebration of the work of internationally reputed architect William T. Baker

- Spectacular homes captured in all their beauty by renowned photographer James R. Lockhart

This gorgeously designed and presented book showcases a selection of the work of renowned architect, William T. Baker. The twelve beautiful homes featured in this book reflect Baker's keen eye for detail and in-depth understanding of materials and of the manufacturing process.

For Baker, the beauty, appeal and comfort of a home are as important as its functionality. He says of his homes 'Time is the ultimate arbiter of a design's success. If a work looks beautiful years after its inception, then you know you did something right. My goal is for my work to reflect the personality of its ultimate user and, in some way, the culture of its time.'

William T. Baker’s world-class talent brings a special creativity that inspires and guides each home he designs towards the dual goal of being both a beautiful work of art and a joy to live in. His house designs range from elegant primary residences to more casual vacation homes and can be found across the United States and the Caribbean. Twelve examples of his most recent work—each design characterized by unique architectural detailing and superior craftsmanship—are showcased in this sumptuously illustrated book. Detailed plans and drawings accompany full-colour photography revealing the scope and quality of these great American homes.
William T. Baker’s house designs have been widely published around the world and have featured numerous times on the Home & Garden television network.
