Timeless : Classic American Architecture for Contemporary Living
Sensitively balancing historic preservation with contemporary innovation, Ahearn's timeless houses feel deeply connected to the stylistic character of their locales, even as their programs and plans celebrate how we live now. In these pages, Ahearn takes us on a journey through the award-winning private residences and public environments that he has created over his 45-year career. He entertainingly explains how his uniquely urbanistic point of view and novel, narrative-driven process help clients live out their dreams, in homes that recall the past, engage with the present, and look to the future.

That book, Timeless: Classic American Architecture for Contemporary Living (Oro Editions), showcases how Ahearn has expertly ascribed the greater-good theory to his work. Released last December, "Timeless" features 18 homes designed by Ahearn along with the stories behind their design, as told by Ahearn. The homes--a mix of historic restorations and new construction--are divided into six categories: History Preserved, History Enhanced, History Modernized, History Imagined, History Re-Interpreted, and On The Water. Ahearn and his team put together the 316-page collection in under a year, a challenging feat in itself before taking into consideration Ahearn had four decades worth of work to choose from.--HALEY COTE "Cape Cod Homes Review "
