'Reviving' is a detailed study of significant restorations and remodels of houses built between 1900 and 1950 in Australia. Now highly sought-after, structures from this era are being cleverly reworked by architects to reveal stunning contemporary spaces within. The book includes fascinating stories from the homeowners, giving a unique perspective on the briefing, design, and construction process. The houses featured are all very different, both in terms of style and scale. Some are almost palatial; others little more than what were once known as worker's cottages. However, irrespective of size or location, all of these houses exemplify how successful renovations can be achieved from a number of different approaches.
