"Convertible Houses" showcases examples of "convertible" design-homes that are designed to accommodate multiple functions. In the first section of the book, case studies illustrate the principles of flexible, multipurpose living that enable the occupants to enjoy more functionality in a finite amount of space. To further illustrate how convertible features add more versatility to living space, a second section details the most successful strategies employed by architects, designers, and homeowners, with chapters devoted to specific devices in action, such as sliding walls, removable partitions, and enveloping curtains. Finally, for those who don't have the budget to make technical improvements, a closing chapter will offer architects' and interior designers' tips on making aesthetic improvements with simple materials (like colour and lighting) and furniture.
