New Rooms for Old Houses

New Rooms For Old Houses Book

Through words and pictures, Shirley shows how to enlarge a home without sacrificing the charm and character of the original structure. Using the guiding principle of “harmony,” Shirley walks readers through the four cornerstones of design on which, he believes, all old house expansions should be based: balance, public and private areas, the careful use of transitions, and the choice of appropriate materials. Packed with photos, both before and after shots, and architectural drawings, “NEW ROOMS FOR OLD HOUSES” is a fascinating tour through the golden age of architecture.
