Full Description

Reviving is a detailed study of significant restorations and remodels of houses built between 1900 and 1950 in Australia. Now highly sought-after, structures from this era are being cleverly reworked by architects to reveal stunning contemporary spaces within. The houses featured are all very different, both in terms of style and scale. Some are almost palatial; others little more than what were once known as worker's cottages. However, irrespective of size or location, all of these houses exemplify how successful renovations can be achieved from a number of different approaches.

Architects featured include: Nest Architects, Kerstin Thompson Architects, Chenchow Little Architects, Andrew Maynard Architects, Multiplicity, Tanner Architects, F2 Architecture, Denton Corker Marshall, Piero Gesualdi, Luigi Rosselli, Circa 1936, Inarc Architects, Tzannes Associates.
