Product description

Quiet Spaces: Inspiring Interiors for Introverts. 

Quiet Spaces showcases the refined interiors designed by architect William Smalley, juxtaposed with spaces around the world that have influenced his work. This collection highlights places of serene contemplation—perfect for reading, listening to music, taking a leisurely walk, or simply finding a moment of peace. These environments embody a unique tranquility and stillness.

Featuring Smalley's projects from his Bloomsbury apartment to locations across the UK, France, and New York, the book also explores inspiring works by other architects. Discover the timeless elegance of a sixteenth-century Palladian villa, the charm of homes in Mexico and Sri Lanka, and the serene Secular Retreat in Devon by Swiss architect Peter Zumthor. Additionally, the book delves into artistic spaces, capturing the simplicity of Barbara Hepworth’s garden and studio in Cornwall and the intimate ambiance of Kettle’s Yard gallery in Cambridge.

With specially commissioned photography by Harry Crowder, the book beautifully conveys the essence of these spaces. A foreword by renowned potter and writer Edmund de Waal reflects on the subtle, unspoken ways we connect with buildings and the meanings they hold for us.
