Atomic Ranch is an in-depth exploration of post-World War II residential architecture in America. Mid-century ranches (1946-1970) range from the decidedly modern gable-roofed Joseph Eichler tracts in the San Francisco Bay area and butterfly wing houses in Palm Springs, Florida, to the unassuming brick or stucco L-shaped ranches and split-levels so common throughout the United States. Authors Michelle Gringeri-Brown and Jim Brown, founders and publishers of the popular quarterly Atomic Ranch magazine, extol the virtues of the tract, split-level, rambler home and its many unique qualities: private front facades, open floor plans, secluded bedroom wings, walls of glass, and an easy-living lifestyle. From updated homes with high-end Italian kitchens, terrazzo floors, and modern furniture to affordable homeowner renovations with eclectic thrift-store furnishings, Atomic Ranch presents twenty-five homes showcasing inspiring examples of stylish living through beautiful color photographs, including before and after shots, design-tip sidebars, and a thorough resource index.Atomic Ranch reveals: Hallmarks of the ranch style Inspiring original ranch homes Ranch house transformations and makeovers Preservation of mid-century neighborhoods Adding personality to a ranch home Yards and landscaping Plus, a helpful resource section and index!

The 1950's house was a scientific triumph, designed in a laboratory and tested on inhabitants of all ages before being built for the masses. Never had homes been so thoroughly contemporary, with antiques and period styles entirely banished. Mid-Century Modern explores the interior decor of this seminal decade, concentrating on all aspects of a home's decoration-walls, flooring, surfaces, lighting, and, of course, furniture. Case studies examine beautiful present-day homes that exhibit mid-century style in an exemplary way, and suggest ideas for taking the 1950's look-complete with collector's pieces-and mixing and matching it with elements from other eras.

There are few towns anywhere like New Canaan, Connecticut-a small, bucolic town that in a short time transformed into an epicenter of residential Modernism in America. Close to Yale and other modernist hothouses, New Canaan became the site of fervent experimentation in its core principles-simplicity, openness, sensitivity to site and nature-by some of the leading lights of the movement in the United States at the time. This is where Philip Johnson, Marcel Breuer, Landis Gores, Eliot Noyes, Edward Durrell Stone, and others built houses that would test these ideas and push the awareness of architectural modernism as the ideal for the domestic lifestyle of the twentieth century. Each chapter features one house in detail, revealing not only its history but also how the house is lived in today. All new photography will reveal key details in the original construction, its interaction with subsequent additions, and of course the effects that reinforce the relationship between modern design and modern living. The voices of the current residents, as well as past owners, clients, builders, and the architects, themselves are included in the book, each stating in their own way how the modernist residence is more than just a philosophy of design and construction, but also a philosophy of living.
