Between expectations that need to be scaled down and striking architectural choices, the search for a home can prove to be a long, complicated process. ‘Houses for Sale’, by architects Michael Meredith and Hilary Sample (MOS Architects), transforms this quest into an itinerary through a series of houses designed by great names in architecture.
