From the Back Cover:

A comprehensive guide to building integrated living and workspaces

"The live-work unit is the natural habitat of mankind.Dwellings—from palace to hovel—have always includedplaces of work. It is only in this past century of suburban madnessthat the connection has been lost. Tom Dolan's book is notradical—it is merely a recall to sanity."—AndrésDuany, CNU, FAIA

"An exciting and clear blueprint for the kind of sharedhome/office design that is gaining momentum throughout the country.Having enjoyed the live-work lifestyle for many years, I hope thisbook will encourage others to try it."—Carol Coletta,Director, ArtPlace

As suburban models of separated-use zoning fade in importance,live-work, which offers both flexibility and zero-commute living,has emerged as the ultimate mixed-use type. Live-work refers tobuildings and mixed-use neighborhoods that concentrate all oflife's functions in one place. Advances in computer and networkingtechnologies allow more people to work from home, leading to arenewed interest in this hybrid land-use and building type.

Live-Work Planning and Design walks readers through the entireprocess of getting live-work projects designed, approved, andbuilt. The author draws on more than twenty-five years ofexperience in the field, examining in detail a wide range ofproject types, including courtyard communities, flexhouses, housingover retail, artists' studios, lofts, condominiums, and more.Numerous case studies and real-world examples highlight bothsuccessful and failed projects, with an emphasis on integratingbuildings into the neighborhood to help projects succeed.

Complete with hundreds of photos and illustrations of live-workand zero-commute housing types, this book discusses the market forlive-work, provides guidance for both new construction andrenovation, and describes how various municipalities haveincorporated live-work into city plans.

Architects, urban planners, developers, and builders oflive-work projects will find this book an insightful and highlypractical resource. It is also valuable for zoning officials andurban planners working on planning and building codes and urbandesigns that incorporate live-work projects.
