About This Book

The pristine interior design and residential architecture of the renowned firm Shelton, Mindel & Associates are celebrated in this first book on their work. Shelton, Mindel & Associates has been receiving international fame since its inception in 1978. Winners of over thirty AIA awards and recipients of the 2011 Cooper-Hewitt National Design Award for Interior Design, founding partners Peter L. Shelton and Lee F. Mindel have had a remarkable career crafting intricate yet minimal spaces infused with serenity and intelligence. Whether designing Sting’s London townhouse or residences for power brokers and social leaders in New York City, Palm Beach, or the Hamptons, Shelton and Mindel invoke their passion for constructing unified environments, where the elements of design and construction become more than the sum of their parts—they become comprehensive works of art. Shelton and Mindel’s luminous aesthetic is the centerpiece of this monograph. With stunning photography of their most important residential projects, each project delves deep into the modernist roots and philosophy of this exceptional design duo, and in turn the pinnacle of architecture and design today.

Reviews

  • "..Shelton, Mindel & Associates has applied a passionately rigorous, nuanced approach to a diverse range of high-profile architecture and interior design projects.... Exacting curatorial attention is given to not only to architecture and design details but also to furnishings.." ~Architectural Digest

    “For the award-winning architects, whose spaces often reached for the sky, this beautifully photographed volume shows these intelligent modernists at play-- from the strategic jolts of color they inject into a New York penthouse, to their deft blending of new and old in an 18th century London townhouse for Sting.” ~Elle Decor

    “Beautifully photographed, the monograph manages to capture the quiet, elusive qualities that always characterize the best designs.” ~1stdibs.com

    “I have long been a devotee of the work of architects Lee Mindel and the late Peter Shelton…At long last their work is chronicled in a new book. Getting to the heart of the matter, each residence begins with goals and a summary of the project, and ends with a solution to the various design challenges. It’s easy to see why the pair has won over 30 awards…” ~Array Magazine
