Summary In 1998 Peripheriques edited the book "36 propositions for a home." The projects resulted from an international competition to design low-priced single-family houses. The publication was a great success and has been out of print for some time. In the meantime, some of the competition entries have been built and in this new book, the realization of these and similar houses which were designed in the same spirit, has been documented. Low in cost and commissioned by ordinary people, these buildings are nevertheless striking examples of contemporary residential forms, where creative use is made of prefabricated materials, buildings and surroundings are integrated in a highly individual way, and the feeling of spaciousness is emphasized in the designs.
