The demand for 21st century townhouses in todays renaissance of urban centralization is on the rise. The modern buildings achieve the same functions on the scant inner city plot as their historic archetypes, but distinguish themselves using a contemporary architectural language. Some of the most spectacular projects reach considerable heights and extend the traditional concept of the townhouse to new dimensions. With the help of vast pictorial material, this volume presents a selection of 70 international projects, whose planners have set it as a goal to architecturally unite living and working in a city setting.
