Publisher's description: The UK's housing stock has proved to be remarkably durable, as houses from the 18th and 19th centuries are still adaptable to the requirements of modern living. However, the need to respect the environment and to reduce energy costs presents a new set of challenges for the owners of period properties. In Renovations, Richard Wilcock 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 remodeling 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 revolutionized the nature of the small house extension and increased the palette of forms and materials available to the architect. Containing beautiful color illustrations throughout, and pointing readers to more detailed technical sources of information, Renovations will provide inspiration for architects, designers and home owners alike.
