An inspiring showcase of masterpieces of the Shingle Style. A richly photographed presentation of some of the most important Shingle Style houses built in America, this book gives readers a privileged view into the splendid interiors of these late-nineteenth- and early-twentieth-century masterpieces of domestic design. Shingle Style traces the path of shingle-clad residential architecture from its Romantic beginnings to the current dizzying variety of architectural ideas--from modern to historicist, green to organic--expressed in the Shingle Style. David Duncan Livingston's full-color photographs exquisitely capture these architectural masterpieces, complete with delightful original interior details, and authors Lucia Howard and David Weingarten place these houses in their proper historical context as examples of the best American Shingle Style design.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Shingle Style opens the door to some of the Bay Area's most distinctive shingle examples and shows how remarkable these houses remain. It's also fun to read, as the authors, who are hugely inventive designers themselves, vividly describe the roller coaster of the imagination that architects rode as they designed a wide array of quirky and compelling living environments." Houseplans.com

"A richly photographed presentation of some of the most important shingle style houses built in America, this book gives readers a privileged view into the splendid interiors of these late-nineteenth and early-twentieth century masterpieces of domestic design.

"The bulk of the book is devoted to photo essays showcasing exterior and interior views of the shingled houses built between 1891 and 1913 in San Francisco, Berkeley, and Marin County...Details are exquisite--in the houses and in the photography." Arts & Crafts Homes

"The authors are architects themselves, and the buildings they present...show why this strain of design remains for many people the distillation of what Bay Area living should be." San Francisco Chronicle
