Domain Driven Design by Eric Evans is one of the books that every architect must read if he wants to develop really extensible enterprise level application, which absorbs knowledge of the problematic domain.
Book talks about Ubiquitous Language which is the language between Domain Experts and Developers and helps them build model of the application.
Once you have this language you could easily start build your model with Entities and Value Objects, making Associations between them and other elements of the system. Then you use Services to apply operations on your domain. To interact with Infrastructure you need Repositories and Factories, this makes Persistace Ignorance Layer to hide and isolate your model from technical impacts of your infrastructure.
Refactoring Toward Deeper Insight plus Distilling of model takes your system to the breakthrough. If you have clear model, future Developers could easily work with it addin new functionality and speaking with Customer on common language they will know it, because code raises it to them.
This is one of most valuable book I've ever read!
