Full Description

Sensitively balancing historic preservation with contemporary innovation, Ahearn’s timeless houses feel deeply connected to the stylistic character of their locales, even as their programs and plans celebrate how we live now. In these pages, Ahearn takes us on a journey through the award-winning private residences and public environments that he has created over his 45-year career. He entertainingly explains how his uniquely urbanistic point of view and novel, narrative-driven process help clients live out their dreams, in homes that recall the past, engage with the present, and look to the future.
