Chevy Chase, MD (PRWEB) July 12, 2012
Architect Bruce Wentworth, AIA, of Wentworth Studio, one of the top remodeling companies in Maryland, explores the modern world of remodeling in his new online book, From House to Home: An Architect's Perspective on Remodeling. Using richly illustrated case studies from Wentworth, he shows how an architect's insights can produce affordable, individually tailored solutions that address a client's needs in a style that suits the house.
The 160-page book, with dozens of photographs and before-and-after floor plans, is available for free at http://www.wentworthstudio.com/from-house-to-home-ebook.
According to Wentworth, older homes offer many opportunities for reimagined, more usable interior spaces as well as new additions. "I like to aim for a 'sympathetic addition'—a new space that's functional, fresh, and attractive, but that also responds to the original house,” Wentworth said. “A thoughtful addition can often enhance a home's appearance, not just add more room. It may be subtle. But every once in a while, it can be spectacular."
From House to Home shows how Wentworth has applied his architecture-based approach to meet the goals of a wide range of clients, from parents with young children to city residents seeking more space to seniors who want to age in place.
Features of From House to Home include:
- In-depth case studies
- An insider's perspective from an architect with his own remodeling firm
