New Book: What Makes a Home?

Architect Gil Schafer strives to find the elements that connect us to our dwellings

In his new book, A Place to Call Home, architect Gil Schafer wants to help us understand something emotional beyond architecture: the elements that connect it to a place and the people who live in it. As he explores homes from the Adirondacks in New York to Mill Valley in California, he shows how a home’s details — from how it’s placed on its site to the smallest details in a doorknob — work together to create a feeling of home.
