Sorrenti: A Designer's Life

Coffee table book

About the book

A self-taught prodigy in architectural design, Hal Sorrenti possessed a bright spirit and a distinctive creative ingenue.

Many of the buildings he created — with their vivid colors, signature design elements, and masterful integration with the surrounding landscape — are immediately recognizable as his artistry.

In particular, his work on Roatan in the Bay Islands of Honduras became synonymous with the unique aesthetic and island lifestyle which Sorrenti perfected in his years residing there.

In this elegant publication, over 50 of Sorrenti’s designs are shown through color photos and a selection of his own drawings and floor plans. The book includes quotes and writings from the designer, as well as the telling of Sorrenti’s life and work by author Thomas Tomczyk.

Sorrenti: A Designer’s Life is certain to be cherished by those who knew Hal Sorrenti personally, and to serve as inspiration to all who appreciate the art of architectural design.
