Description
Information
Making Older Buildings Into Dynamic Homes For Today.

This stunning collection displays beautiful, unique, and imaginative homes that have been transformed from buildings with a past. Each suits their owner's needs while reflecting their personality and underlining their individuality. From the Tin Roof Barn in Vermont to the Terra Cotta Factory in Princeton, New Jersey, some fifteen projects are detailed, showing by example how adaptation has worked in a number of vastly different and intriguing cases.

This book reveals the elements that unify all conversions, and highlights the most important, challenging, and fascinating aspects of all great adaptations. Complementing the case studies is an invaluable reference of sources for architects and builders, as well as instruction on how to work with preservation societies and local construction laws.

A visual treat, as well as a practical guide, this essential reference has everything you need to know to get started on your own great adaptation.
