The House Whisperer

Hugh Newell Jacobsen.

My favourite residential architect is by all means Mr.Hugh Newell Jacobson.I fell in love with the work of Mr. Jacobson when I saw a house he designed outside Washington one of the first Architectural Digest magazine that I ever bought at the end of the 1970s.

His style is so unique that wherever he builds a house he adapts the language of the local architecture into his modernist buildings. His architecture is always different but recognisable. He manages to mix the traditional early american architecture with the contemporary to design houses that are of a pure beauty and fit in the way of life of his clients.

“It’s very important to me for a house to fit in and not shout at its neighbors.” says Mr. Jacobsen.

Please have a look at the website.
