Architect Keith Summerour, whose work has been featured in Architectural Digest, Garden and Gun, and Coastal Living, was raised in Alabama and trained at Auburn University, and his firm is now based in Atlanta, Georgia, though his projects range from coast to coast. Andrew and Gemma Ingalls are a husband-and-wife photography team whose clients include Saveur and House Beautiful.
"Keith Summerour embraces his approach to classical design in his
first book, set to be released next month. The Atlanta-based
architect takes readers on a tour through some of his projects,
from renovations to newly built abodes, that showcase his
interpretation of classical style. To round out the volume,
Summerour shares photos of his private country residence that he
designed in rural Georgia with a 70-foot-high stone tower."
"In his new book Creating Home: Design for Living (Rizzoli, $50), Summerour writes of his own country house, 'I have learned to adjust myself to my home's personality, just as I might accept the quirks of a special, appealingly complicated friend.'"
"An architect whose work is classically rooted, Summerour taps into his Southern heritage, creating houses that are both soulful and respectful of the land on which they sit. Whether located in the city or the country, a Summerour-designed house is not just dreamy to look at, it's a lesson in how to live comfortably, too."
