An introduction, informed by the SPAB’s distinctive approach, to the principles of designing new work for old buildings, and to integrating alterations and additions sensitively and sustainably, whilst protecting historic character and fabric. Roger Hunt is an award-winning writer and blogger with a particular interest in sustainable and vernacular architecture and the materials and techniques used in construction. His book New Design for Old Buildings (co-authored with Iain Boyd, with a foreword by Kevin McCloud) explores how effective contemporary design can give new life to the historic environment. He is also co-author (with Marianne Suhr) of both the bestselling Old House Handbook and Old House Eco Handbook, recently republished in a second edition. He is also the author of Rural Britain: Then and Now, a celebration of the British countryside, Villages of England, and Hidden Depths, an archaeological exploration of Surrey’s past. Roger lectures on building-related issues and is a judge of annual awards for new housing. His latest renovation project is a 1900 house on Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts, USA.
