Coming Home Book Signing with Kevin Clark

Book Signing Event to Take Place at Mecox Gardens, with Kevin Clark of Historical Concepts

Renowned architect Kevin Clark will be signing purchased copies of his firm’s new book entitled, Coming Home: The Southern Vernacular House at Mecox Gardens on January 23rd from 5-7 p.m.

Clark will answer attendee questions about how to continue Texas architectural traditions, while simultaneously designing and building homes that accommodate the needs of today’s 21st century homeowners. He will also answer questions about how Historical Concepts’ partners collaborated to co-author the awe-inspiring coffee table and gift-oriented book. Attendance will be free for the public, and books may be purchased on site to be signed upon request. 

Each home or building pictured and described in the book showcases meticulously designed exteriors and interiors with unified elements, resulting in a display of homes that are aesthetically pleasing from all vantage points and floor plans that reflect the various homeowners’ lifestyles. The firm’s partners co-authored the book to feature residences, buildings and neighborhoods that were designed by drawing on the South’s thematic style. Each chapter provides a look at homes or communities that pay homage to America’s architectural heritage.

For nearly thirty years, Historical Concepts has designed country houses, mountain retreats, and coastal cottages that showcase the South’s deep sense of place. Whether drawing from the refined residences of Charleston and Savannah; the rural farmhouses and rustic cabins in the Blue Ridge Mountains; or historic houses throughout the South, the firm specializes in award-winning, regional architecture and design. The homes featured in the book capture the spirit and essence of southern-style. Beautifully photographed, it enlightens readers with a wide range of design inspiration, beautiful homes that represent today’s relaxed lifestyle, and insight about blending elements of Classical design with southern charm.
