Eric J. Smith pays homage to tradition while showcasing his unique brand
of architecture in his stunning new book Renewing Tradition: The Architecture of Eric J. Smith. From a dreamy Dutch Colonial built in an enclave on the Long Island waterfront to a Cotswold-inspired 1920s stone beauty, Smith has garnered a reputation for being in sync with the homeowners he works with no matter the location.

As readers flip through the book’s luxurious pages, they’ll find highlights of grand houses, apartments, and cabins spanning from New York to California, as well as inspiration to find their own comfortable elegance.
