doctoral thesis 2017

Homes are renovated a number of times during their lifespan. Although we can regard each of these renovations as new, it is more prudent to implement a future-proof solution to renovation. The purpose of this study is to gain an insight into how future-proof renovation solutions are for homes built between 1975 and 1991 that are currently being carried out or offered on the market. The study adopts a primarily architectural viewpoint to examine the hypothesis that we first need to be aware of what is architecturally possible and relevant, before it makes sense to answer any further questions.
