For a growing number of people happiness is no longer to be found in a terraced house or a suburban housing development. The plurality of modern lifestyles has given rise to a variety of housing forms.
What needs do people have these days when it comes to their homes? What values do they wish to convey, and what does private luxury mean to them? Moreover, how is the concept of luxury manifested in a city villa, a home for the disabled, an upper-end urban apartment, a house with a garden or a large-scale housing project?
luxuryLiving is project documentation and essay collection in one. In a critical dialogue, a selection of residential buildings and projects by BGP and theoretical essays from a number of disciplines explore aspects of luxury in housing construction.
The volume includes an introductory text by Gerhard Mack; contributions by Hubertus Adam, Markus Brändle-Ströh, Claude Enderle, Michael Gnehm, Susanne Gysi, Benedikt Loderer, Andre Odermatt und Judit Solt; poems by Sabina Naef; and photographs by Ruedi Walti.
