This book explores the current trend of remodeling, redesigning, and upgrading existing homes, and raises it to an art form by profiling the projects of award-winning architect Barry Sugerman.
Often the most desirable building sites, such as those with water access or mountain views, have already been built on, and just as often, there are existing municipal codes that prohibit tear-downs or expansions by restricting renovations to existing setbacks, footprints, or height restrictions. Sugerman's designs show how he seamlessly integrates existing structures into striking remodels, and how he surpasses the problems of dated houses to combine luxurious living and contemporary, cutting edge architectural designs into redesigns that fit with their existing neighborhoods.
The Art of Renovation is not your father's remodel. This book breaks new ground by stimulating readers to create visually inspiring residential remodels featuring light-filled spaces, expansive views, and the most luxury that contemporary design can offer. Even houses with a modest square footage appear open, spacious and welcoming after a Sugerman-designed remodel.
