The intuitive design, sun-lit spaces and tranquil vibe of Modernist houses still have an enduring appeal today. But can these homes be updated for contemporary living while maintaining the integrity of the original architecture?

Alongside stories of the passionate homeowners, architects and collaborators who have given these homes new life, a historical overview and section on practical considerations inform those drawn to a Modernist dream house. This colourful volume is both a useful resource for those embarking on their own renovation journey, and a sourcebook of inspiration for delighting in moments of nostalgia.
