Synopsis

Creative re-use is more than conversion or rehabilitation of a property for new, or continued, use. The two volumes of this book offer numerous illustrated examples of the innovative work by a range of architects in addition to key projects from Derek Latham's own practice. Volume 1 focuses on the challenge of identifying a suitable building, understanding its essential qualities, and selecting an option appropriate for both its setting and the people who will use it. It discusses the choice between design intervention, repair and replication, and when to use new techniques or traditional skills. Additional guidance is provided through a wide range of example, notes, such as survey tips, and case studies. Volume 2 offers an extensive collection of illustrated examples from different parts of the UK showing buildings of every shape, size and type. Each building type is examined separately: country houses, hospitals, industrial buildings, offices, railway stations, farms with outbuildings, churches, schools and many others. It then describes the range of potential re-uses that might be considered, taking account of their size and suitability for the relevant function. This book will be of interest to all those involved in the debate about our future built environment particularly architects, surveyors, planners, developers and conservation professionals.
