What would you do if you could reinvent your home?

A link to the garden, to bring nature closer. A re-thought layout, that complements your lifestyle. A greener home, for a sustainable future (and lower energy bills).

More space. Better space.

You probably know what is wrong with your house, but do you really know what would improve it? Architects do. Even better, they can design a home that works for you, with ideas and solutions that you may not yet have considered.

This stunningly illustrated book showcases the best examples of what can be achieved when homeowners collaborate with RIBA-certified architects to realise their House Goals. Sorted by motivation, it breaks down how architects can address these universal problems in unique, bespoke ways that suit their clients, while providing inspiration for your own home.

Crucially, House Goals fully explains the process of working with architects - from first contact to completion - to ensure you know exactly what you're getting into, and how to make the most of it.


Examples of projects in Georgian, Victorian, Edwardian, inter-war and post-war homes.
A range of scales, from one-bed flats and split-level maisonettes to two-up, two-down terraces and cosy cottages, elegant town houses and detached homes as well as interesting conversions and garden rooms.
Rural and urban locations ranging from hamlets to big cities, covering: London, Norfolk, Cheshire, Sussex, Herefordshire, Yorkshire, Oxfordshire and more.
Work from more than 30 architects, including: Arboreal Architecture, Bradley Van der Straeten Architects, Gagarin Studio, IF_DO, Knox Bhavan and nimtim architects.
With a foreword by Kevin McCloud.
