The country houses, city dwellings, and seaside houses of master architect Pietro Cicognani

For 30 years, Italian-born Pietro Cicognani has been designing highly customized and exquisitely crafted country houses, city apartments, outbuildings, pool houses, and even garden plans for an A-list clientele. In the first monograph of his work, some 20 of his notable projects are featured, including a converted barn complex on Long Island, a sprawling estate in upstate New York, a chic minimalist town house in Manhattan, and a romantic seaside house and elaborate garden in the Hamptons. Whether new construction or gut renovation, each project is designed in collaboration with the finest artisans, craftspeople, and exceptional interior designers. Illustrated with photographs by Francesco Lagnese, as well as site and floor plans and drawings, the book includes a foreword by Isabella Rossellini, whose country home Cicognani designed.


“Pietro Cicognani’s book celebrates 35 years of architectural creativity.”
“During the course of his diverse, 30-year career, architect Pietro Cicognani has designed everything from formal country estates and glamorous Fifth Avenue duplexes to eclectic restaurant interiors and minimalist artist studios. Yet if there’s one type of structure the architect may be most identified with, it’s the barn. An entire section of his sumptuous new book is devoted to barn-style homes.”
