there aren’t very many people’s work that moves me quite like Gil Schafer’s (G.P. Schafer III). His architecture and his design is in my book the best of today. a traditionalist and classicist, his work feels like it’s from another time, a time when detail, quality and style was the measure of beauty.

Gil just re-launched his new website, see it here, and like everything he does, he launched it beautifully. this weekend i received in the mail an announcement of the re-launch, a very elegant brochure announcing the news.

if you don’t have gil’s book, the great american house/ buy here, you must get it- it’s one of my favorite books, a great resource and a source of limitless inspiration.

here are a few projects by G.P. Schafer III- the Great American Architect.
