The UK’s housing stock has proved to be remarkably durable, as houses from the 18th and 19th centuries are still adaptable to the requirements of modern living. However, the need to respect the environment and to reduce energy costs presents a new set of challenges for the owners of period properties.
In Renovations, Richard Wilcock analyses a host of cutting-edge projects to examine the challenges of adapting traditional house types; retaining historic features whilst introducing modern interventions. The book brings together more than two decades of research to showcase the best examples of domestic extensions and internal remodelling in the UK today.
The carefully selected exemplar projects highlight advances in technology, including new glazing methods, improvements in flat roof construction and structural innovations in steel and lightweight timber that have revolutionised the nature of the small house extension and increased the palette of forms and materials available to the architect.
Containing beautiful colour illustrations throughout, and pointing readers to more detailed technical sources of information, Renovations will provide inspiration for architects, designers and home owners alike.
Renovations has been kindly sponsored by Mumford & Wood who are, since 1954, leading providers of made-to-order timber windows and doors of outstanding quality, excelling in design, aesthetics and performance. For further information, please go to www.mumfordwood.com

Architecturally ambitious house extensions have come to offer a unique outlet for innovative design. Clearly written and beautifully illustrated, Richard Wilcock’s book is the first comprehensive account of this phenomenon: for anyone, house-owner or architect, contemplating such a project it is an essential source of inspiration and information – there are even shrewd insights into how to deal with the Planners!
