This clear and concise guide is the ideal introduction to contemporary housing design for students and professionals of architecture, urban design and planning. With the increasing commitment to sustainable design and with an ever-increasing demand for houses in urban areas, housing design has taken on a new and crucial role in urban planning.

It looks at practical design solutions to real urban problems and includes advice on reclamation and re-use of buildings. The guidance it presents is universally relevant.
