Summary
Adding. Extending. Transforming. Upgrade breathes new life into forgotten architecture. Exploring architectural and design concepts that seek to enhance and repurpose our surroundings. From slight changes to complete renovations, the spectrum of possibilities is vast. Extensions upon a rooftop. Factories turned into relaxing retreats. Wood additions contrast with antique brick exteriors. Through engaging anecdotes and inspiriting images, Upgrade provides vibrant exemplars and enthusiasm for revamping existing spaces. Repurposing the unused; a dilapidated barn, a raddled townhome, a historical and fading building façade - these can all be starting points for stunning and inspiring homes. Transformations: be it sheds into playrooms, a garage to a guesthouse, or an alpine hut into a holiday getaway. Hidden in the walls of old structures are possibilities and inspirations that can be realized with any budget; charm and character become the criteria for titivating a residence. Projects that succeed in finding the balance between the traditional and the modern. Architects share their experiences, motivations, and approaches. Before-and-after photos illustrate the metamorphoses. A volume for all who desire a new perspective, for those that prefer to preserve rather than to demolish. What are ruins to some become another's architectural playground
