Since its founding in 1991, Basel-based Luca Selva Architects has realized a wide range of residential projects. Many of these projects, like a home featuring an art studio or extensive collection of paintings, inventively incorporate these specific contexts. Others involve complex composition of space in order to accommodate several generations or more than one family.
           
The first book on the renowned firm, Luca Selva Architects—Eight Houses and a Pavilion features nine of its projects. Through them, readers gain a sense of Luca Selva Architects’s interest in the home as a means for exploring larger questions of space, typology, and architectural phenomenology. Included are more than one hundred illustrations, from floor and site plans, to sections and elevations, as well as an essay on the single-family home as an architectural task and an interview by Daniel Buchner with the firm’s founder, Luca Selva.
