West Coast Residential demonstrates how modernist traditions are being integrated into contemporary design. It also explains what were the defining features of the West Coast mid-century vernacular and asks whether it still exists today. Featured residences include the Battersby/Howat Gulf Island residence on Mayne Island, British Columbia; the Eggleston/Farkas 2001 Mathieson House in Seattle; John Yeon's 1939 Jorgensen House in Portland, Oregon; Stanley Saitowitz's 1990 Di Napoli Residence in Los Gatos, California; and Barton Myers' 1999 Barton Myers House and Studio in Montecito, California. This celebration of design is a must for art, architecture, and university bookstores, as well as museum shops.
