9780060589080: Affordable Home Design: Innovations and Renovations

One of our most important requirements as humans is the dwelling. Designing a home is thus one of the most important challenges architecture has to deal with. On the one hand, architects must create homes that guarantee with the highest of quality the wellbeing and comfort of their inhabitants. On the other hand, architects must learn how to manage a client's limited budget by reducing costs without affecting the quality of the final result.

Affordable Home Design showcases a wide array of solutions to this same architectural challenge of good design and structure on a budget. The projects featured include extensions of houses and apartments already in existence, ecological housing design, sustainable and structurally cost-effective homes, and new buildings in strictly coded conservation zones. Through more than 250 full-color photographs, this essential book reveals how today's architects are able to adapt to the necessities of a more affordable budget when approaching the always exciting necessity of designing a home.
