The book examines 17 years of HUUM's architectural work

The hardback book looks closely at 21 current and completed projects by HUUM, ranging from private residences, to commercial spaces and public buildings.

Each structure has been captured in colour photography, and is accompanied by a short description and architectural drawings that reveal details about the buildings' interiors.

One of the featured projects is East Meets West, a 1930s house in Florida that was expanded to suit art-collector clients

Described by HUUM as its own "anthology", the book illustrates the practice's modern approach to design and the variety of commissions completed since it was founded in 2000. Italian architect Pierluigi Serraino has written the preface to the book, introducing this body of work.

Paseo Miramar, a 1950s home in Los Angeles renovated by HUUM in 2006, also features in the book

Projects featured in the book include a seafront home in Florida called Beach Road 2, whose design was informed by materials typically found strewn along the coast, and Big Timber Riverside, a property which sits within a clearing of a 2,000 acre ranch in Montana.

The title also showcases projects that the practice is currently working on, such as a winemaking facility in the rural hills of northern Italy and an office building in south Florida whose plain white facade conceals a greenery-covered rear volume.
