Abstract

HOME: Investing in Design shows how any property can be transformed into a stunning home with the help of design professionals. It features 17 inspirational homes that have all been extended, converted or reorganised to create dramatic living spaces that suit the lifestyle and circumstances of their owners. Find out how the projects got started, where the design concepts came from, how the architects were briefed and drawings agreed, right through to what happened when the on-site work began. HOME: Investing in Design gives a real insight into the whole experience – the highs and the lows, the pitfalls and the planning issues. Whether you own a terraced house, a modern apartment, a Victorian villa or a country cottage, HOME: Investing in Design will give you the inspiration and practical advice you need to create a spectacular dream home that will enhance your lifestyle and add value to your investment. This eye-catching, lusciously illustrated book includes factual information, a glossary of terms and a directory of designers as well as answers to all of the questions first-time property developers need to ask: •How much will it cost? •How do you commission an architect? •How long will it take? •How much hassle will it be?
