As much beautiful monograph as thought-provoking manifesto, Timeless, reveals how Patrick Ahearn’s historically motivated, human-scaled designs advance the art of place-making in America’s most storied communities. Whether restoring landmarked century-old townhouses in Boston’s Back Bay or creating new homes that reinterpret the local vernacular of Martha’s Vineyard, Ahearn demonstrates an unparalleled ability to combine the romantic aesthetic of traditional architecture with the philosophical ideals of modernism. Sensitively balancing historic preservation with contemporary innovation, Ahearn’s timeless houses feel deeply connected to the stylistic character of their locales, even as their programs and plans celebrate how we live now. In these pages, Ahearn takes us on a journey through the award-winning private residences and public environments he’s created over his 45-year career, entertainingly explaining how his uniquely urbanistic point of view and novel, narrative-driven process help clients live out their dreams in homes that comfortingly recall the past, fully engage with the present and ambitiously look to the future.
Timeless will be officially released December 15, 2017, however, it is available to pre-order on Amazon today.
