More info

When much of our existing housing stock was built, lifestyles were very different. This has meant that a large proportion of architect’s work has been adapting these older buildings, rather than building afresh. The challenge is thus to adapt our old buildings to our new ways of living, whilst not destroying what we like about the older houses. Adaption will often mean adding more space. This will often be to the back, the roof or the side, or even sometimes underneath, whilst retaining the original building’s front as part of the streetscape.

This book is about the challenge of adapting our old buildings to our new lifestyles in lots of different and creative ways.
