In this work, four chapters examine 36 conversions of rural, urban and civic buildings, lofts and industrial spaces, and radical one-offs. With each case study the author asks: what does one leave intact, what does one rip out and what is one forbidden to change by planning regulations? The budget, the materials used and the way they impact upon surroundings are also examined and assessed.
