CAIRO BOOKS's Description
As populations grow, where and how we live is a major concern. Architects
address the issue of housing, and converting spaces is often a more
satisfactory solution than building from scratch. Conversions shows that with a
bit of imagination all sorts of buildings can be converted into homes. With
each case study the author asks: What does one leave intact, what does one rip
out, and what changes are forbidden by planning regulations? The budget, the
materials, and the way they impact upon surroundings are also examined and
assessed. Varied projects from around the world include rural, urban and civic
buildings, lofts and industrial spaces, and radical one-offs.
