    Radical Renovations Inspiring Architectural MakeoversEdited by Beth Browne

    Radical Renovations presents more than 50 outstanding examples of adaptivereuse in residential and commercial architecture, wherein existing buildings havebeen dramatically transformed with truly stunning results.

    For many of these remarkable remodels the architects have utilised the principlesof environmentally sustainable development in their designs, highlighting theimportance of repurposing and sustainable building. This ultimate act of recyclingcan provide environmental and aesthetic benefits. Many architects and designers

    are making conscientious and creative use of available resources to minimisedemolition and waste while delivering cost savings, style and sustainability.

    The projects featured range from drastic yet respectful remodels of heritagebuildings to major modernist makeovers and downsized-yet-upgraded spacesfor empty nesters. In locations as diverse as Japan, the UK, Spain, Australia,the USA and Italy, each radical renovation breathes new life and function intoan existing structure often in astonishingly innovative ways.

  • An extensive remodel for a couple whose childrenhad left home, this project incorporated thereduction of building area and a drastic updateof the design to meet the clients desire for amodern building. The existing 4000-square-footbuilding appeared massive from the street, andwas often mistaken for an apartment building.The existing building was remodelled to providea strong relationship between the building and its site, views andorientation, where formerly there was none, while meeting the strictdevelopment standards of the governing agencies.

    Utilising as much of the existing conditions as possible, the reorganisationof the building is centred on a flowing series of spaces flooded withnatural light. To meet the governing conditions, the south wall of the groundfloor was maintained and the second-floor volume was shifted to the northto create a continuous 60-foot-long skylight that floods the once-dark livingspaces with natural light. The second-floor volume continues this idea bystepping again to create a clerestory window line that directs natural light
