In Renovations, the author analyses a host of cutting-edge projects to examine the challenges of adapting traditional house types; retaining historic features whilst introducing modern interventions. The book brings together more than two decades of research to showcase the best examples of domestic extensions and internal remodelling in the UK today.
The carefully selected exemplar projects highlight advances in technology, including new glazing methods, improvements in flat roof construction and structural innovations in steel and lightweight timber that have revolutionised the nature of the small house extension and increased the palette of forms and materials available to the architect.
Containing beautiful colour illustrations throughout, and pointing readers to more detailed technical sources of information, Renovations will provide inspiration for architects, designers and home owners alike.
