Summary
What makes a great house in the city? This title examines what has worked well in some of the most successful housing types throughout the world - from old to new, high rise to low rise, innovative to conventional. Alongside editor Tim Battle, authors Robert Dalziel and Sheila Qureshi critically examine what they believe are the most significant elements of urban housing design: adaptability and flexibility, construction and sustainability, space and light, appearance and threshold, and density and urban form
