WOW! CONVERTED SPACES

162,75 zł Cena
The idea of converting spaces comes mostly from the need to satisfy spatial and functional requirements of new occupancies. The lack of empty lots and the high cost of land in urban environments could be considered contributing factors that lead to the adaptation and reuse of redundant structures. Consequently, many of these structures now house occupancies for which they were not originally intended. Conversion of spaces should not be considered a negative outcome in urban development for it allows society to preserve its architectural heritage. The result is often an interesting, dynamic co-existence between old and new.

Yet, Hutker Architects, Inc., has designed over two hundred homes in coastal New England that avoid a single style. The twenty-five diverse residential projects in this book illustrate a process not a preordained style. The common thread through the Hutker projects is use of the life equity principle: a home should generate social and emotional equity over time. The conversation between the architect and each client unveils how to design and build this home once well to ensure positive and enduring social and emotional outcomes. A home with life equity provides for the owner's long term needs, both physical and psychological, uses materials best suited to the spaces needed, and accommodates ever-changing family arrangements. The Hutker homes fit clients so well, that they are rarely sold outside the families that build them. Whether small or large, owners treat these homes as heirlooms to be preserved and handed down to the next generation.

RENOVATING FOR LIVING

Sometimes restoring a building is more complicated than constructing a new one, not simply because of the historical value of the part which is to be preserved, but also bearing in mind the state of the structure is often not known before the project gets underway. This makes these commissions a real challenge as the architect must put into practice very different strategies to those deployed on a new-build, often resulting in a very satisfying experience.This book presents 28 case studies of sensitive conversions, including work from Enric Miralles, Jo Crepain and Greg Gong. The projects include residential conversions of historic buildings such as the Hamburg Soup Kitchen, farmhouses and warehouses. The highlights include the House with A Porch in Asti, the exterior changed not a jot, and the Temple of Love, a pagan study in glass and stone that rose from the ruins of a Burgundy railway station. The descriptive text focuses on the specific problems to be overcome and the often creative strategies deployed to this end. The studies are clear and uncluttered with plenty of plans and photographs.
