The Design of Renovations

Donald Friedman (Author), Nathaniel Oppenheimer (Author)

Overview | Inside the Book

A guide to renovation design for architects and engineers.

The design of renovations is like any other building design, but more complicated, because the questions that architects and engineers face in the process are complicated by the existing building's form, materials, peculiarities of age, and construction. The Design of Renovations outlines the basic pertinent principles of design and construction and explains how to apply them to renovation that meets the physical and aesthetic needs of the job, given the constraints of the materials involved. Dozens of actual case studies illustrate the practical application of the theory, methods, and procedures.
