This new monograph of the work of Bay Area based, internationally acclaimed Swatt | Miers Architects features 30 exciting new projects, including 20 new homes, covering the prolific decade between 2006 and 2016. This 10-year period has seen the work of Swatt | Miers expand into different regions of California, including the Central Valley, the Northern California wine country, and Los Angeles; different states, including Hawaii and Colorado; and other regions of the world, including Canada, India and Spain. Designed from the inside out, the constant threads that pervade the work include strong relationships of architecture to land, open planning for informal living, and dissolving the boundary between inside and outside... all designed to be as beautiful to live in as to behold. This volume showcases this firm's award-winning projects and recent accomplishments in glorious full color, and is replete with insightful and engaging commentary across the monograph's extraordinary collection of international works.

Swatt | Miers Architects was formed as a merger of two long established San Francisco Bay Area firms, Swatt Architects and George Miers and Associates, Architects and Planners, with the goal of creating a practice that consistently creates beautiful, sustainable and user-responsive buildings, while offering their clients the highest level of design, management and principal- oriented services. The firm's dedication to excellence has contributed to the recognition they have received, with over 70 local, regional and national design awards, including the prestigious National Honor Award from the American Institute of Architects for the historic renovation of The Icehouse, San Francisco's largest pair of masonry buildings, for Levi Strauss & Co.
