Most people agree that the renovation of old buildings requires some constraint: on the one hand there is the designers' instinctive desire to start anew and let the imagination run free to show off a bit; but on the other is the need to safeguard historically significant buildings or sometimes simply preserve unique aspects of the existing structure.

It can be a difficult balance to strike. All of the works included in this volume were selected for their proven success in bringing out the best in old structures while adding new elements and improving functionality.
