Table of contents
'Above' presents extensions and loft conversions, showing how to work within sightlines and idiosyncratic spaces; 'Below' looks at basements and semi-subterranoan levels, revealing how to make the best of restricted space and limited natural light; 'Beside' examines side extensions, considering smaller, transitional spaces that improve the flow of older or vertical floor layouts, or admit more light into a dark house; 'Behind' looks at back extensions and conservatories, and suggests how to improve links to the garden, bring the outdoors in or add new architectural statements; 'Around' combines aspects of the above four.
