Description

Showcases architecture that's driven by a budget this book features 50 projects from Australia, New Zealand, the USA and Europe and includes new homes, kit homes and renovations. This book by Stephen Crafti showcases innovative budget-driven architecture from around the world. These new houses, extensive renovations, and kit homes illustrate how dreams can be achieved with restricted funds. Rather than attempting to fulfil endless wish lists, the architects and designers of these budget-conscious projects first assessed what was needed. Including more than 40 projects from Europe, the United States, Japan, and Australia, this book highlights the fact that strong ideas are often more valuable than unlimited budgets. And in lean times, more people are looking for imaginative solutions that won't cost the earth. The homes in this book demonstrate that creating something extraordinary on a budget requires innovation and imagination as well as recognition of the importance of sustainable living. AUTHOR: Stephen Crafti is the author of many books for The Images Publishing Group, including 'H2O, Making the Most of Small Spaces, The Office: Designing for Success' and 'Courtyards for Modern Living.' He is a regular contributor to several Australian newspapers and local and international design magazines.
