Yesterday I went to ADAC to see Gil Schafer speak about his new book The Great American House. For those who are not familiar, I encourage you to look at his work. He is so talented. I love that he consistently appreciates the history of architecture – whether he is working on a brand new home or a 200 year old home. Even if the home is being built from the ground up, he designs it to look as if it were built decades ago. And I LOVE old houses. If I ever build a house (that’s a big IF), I will hire Gil Schafer to do the architecture.
Although he lives in New York now, his biggest inspiration was his grandmother’s home in Thomasville, Georgia – right down the road from Atlanta. He talked about this a lot. I thought that was very interesting. He showed pictures of her sprawling estate that I so wish I could post on here.
He has also worked with Miles Redd on several projects.
Anyways, I can’t wait to dive into his book! Here is a little taste of his work…
