MR Architecture + Decor's work--which, true to its name, straddles the line between architecture and interior design--is driven by the belief that close collaborations with clients lead to personalised and intimate homes. The first collection of the firm's 20 years of work includes a brief history of the firm, founded by David Mann. Featuring 15 never-before-seen projects, the text not only describes each project but also includes two distinct points of view: that of MR Architecture + Decor and that of the client or collaborator. More than 200 appealing photographs of some of the firm's gorgeous residential work are included, taken by such leading architecture and interior design photographers as Francois Dischinger, Eric Piasecki, Simon Upton, and Josh McHugh. MR Architecture + Decor celebrates an architecture and design firm whose variety and depth of work, from Takashimaya, the legendary department store on Fifth Avenue, to log cabins in Montana, demonstrates the power of creativity and collaboration.
David Mann is the founding partner of MR Architecture + Decor and an acclaimed architect and interior designer. He lives in New York City.
