About This Item: 
This visually stunning new title is dedicated to the seemingly magical transformation of spaces and structures It covers an amazing range of residential and commercial architecture as well as large-scale urban renewal, showcasing projects that frequently cross functional boundaries The dramatic scope of the renovations included in this title give the reader a visceral shock to the system: an office auditorium converted into an urban oasis, an old airplane repurposed into a must-visit hostel, and 19th century ruins updated to become a modern family home Some transformations not to be missed include The Alan Voo House in Los Angeles, which doubled in size from a 1, 000 square foot residence to a 2, 000 square foot residence through the insertion of a new 16ft linear house into the existing house (Neil M Denari Architects Inc), or the refurbishment of a 1975 office building in Mexico City into a residential block with 23 apartments Its main and rear facades having been replaced with a chopped metal façade in the style of the Mexican handcraft papel picado, creating a liveable artwork (Hierve-Disenaria Architects) Other works include an alpine hut conversion in Slovenia, Blue Frog Lounge in Mumbai, and the Jumbo Hostel in Stockholm
