WILLIAM SMALLEY QUIET SPACES
(english edition)

An elegant presentation of interiors for introverts, placing the memorable work of London architect William Smalley alongside buildings around the world that have inspired his practice.

The interiors in Quiet Spaces were made for private contemplation: calm places in which to read a book, listen to music, or have dinner with friends. Showcasing the possibilities of sophisticated, low-key luxury design,this book presents the work of William Smalley alongside a selection of inspirational spaces across the globe that have influenced his practice.

This timely publication speaks to the growing trend for slow and calm living, boosted by a return to focusing on home life thanks to the pandemic. Organized into four themed chapters?Space, Silence, Shadows, and Life?Quiet Spaces reveals the importance of key design concepts in creating quiet equilibrium in Smalley’s practice, as well as in homes, interiors, and architecture more generally. Projects range from Smalley’s work?including his own Bloomsbury apartment and several private residences, frequently in old houses?to inspiring buildings around the world, such as Mexico City’s Casa Luis Barragán, Villa Saraceno in Italy, and Kettle’s Yard in Cambridge.

Newly commissioned photography and interviews with the owners give fresh insights into the experience of living in these exquisite spaces, brought together in an elegant and covetable package that will inspire designers, architects, and anyone with a love of restrained and refined design.
