This book is a compilation of some of the more interesting town houses which have been recently constructed. If we had to highlight one characteristic from the projects presented here, it would be their ability to make the most out of their space in such creative ways.

Within the basic typology of flat between parallel walls, a world of possibilities open -- space full of light, endless staircases, curtain walls, facades which spread completly out to the street or contrarily enclosed into mysterious gardens and interior patios.

The play between inside and out, public and private, work space and living space is intrinsic to the language spoken by the new town house; a house that proposes a way of dwelling and a life style which is attractive and wholly urban.
