Upgrade 2 is the follow-up to Upgrade, Gestalten's hugely successful title on home extensions, alterations and refurbishments. While the need for housing continues to grow, so does architects' interest in responsible building practices. The renovation of old homes, or repurposing of existing sturctures for housing, occupies the convergence of these two concerns. The results are not only far more eco-conscious, but also thrillingly creative, from pre-fab housing on a budget to lush suburban residences, and even former churches or barns. Presenting both the technical aspects and the particular stories of each case, Upgrade 2 is the reference book for those who want to give the past something more than a fresh coat of paint.
