Summary Guest houses have become an exceptionally popular and attractive type of accommodation for tourists and travelers in recent decades. As the setting often influences the architecture, interior design, and decoration of a guest house, visitors have the opportunity to more closely experience local customs and culture and engage with the surrounding environment. Another Escape: Designing the Modern Guest House II presents a collection of guest houses in China, North America, Europe and Northern Africa that are in harmony with their setting. These outstanding projects are distinct for their architecture and interior spaces, and each has a character that is greatly influenced by history, culture, and regional context. This book provides guidance on guest house design and management, and with enticing color photographs, technical drawings, and freehand sketches, it is an essential source of inspiration for architects, interior designers, small business owners, and anyone looking to establish a guest house in their local region
