Almost all architecture is designed on commission for a client. And the architect's design must always bend to the wishes or demands of that client. The situation is turned on its head, however, when the architect becomes his/her own client when building, renovating or redecorating their own home. All of a sudden, the architect has the freedom to give full expression to his vision on living and the humble home is transformed into something of a calling card.

This book contains 16 such calling cards: sixteen extensive reports on the lofts, apartments or houses where leading Dutch architects as Herman Herzberger, Gunnar Daan, Felix Claus and others live.
