Southern California architects and husband/wife team, M. Brian Tichenor and Raun Thorp are known for their thoughtful attention to the relationship between architecture and landscape. Their goal is to seamlessly knit together exterior and interior spaces. In their newly released book, Outside In: The Gardens and Houses of Tichenor & Thorp (Vendome), the design duo invites us into their own beautiful, luxurious homes. From Mediterranean to Colonial, California desert to the foot of the Tetons in Wyoming, the book delivers over 475 stunning photographs and illustrations. Starting with the land and views, it also dives into Tichenor & Thorp’s core design elements of each project. I found myself enjoying going between projects I was personally drawn to instead of reading from cover to cover. It a great book for any architectural and landscape lover.
When outside and inside are designed together and as a whole, there is a cohesiveness that is extraordinary: Interiors feel expansive and light, and the garden feels connected and accessible—an integral part of the living environment. – M. Brian Tichenor, AD
