The New Old House presents 18 private historic homes, from North America to Europe, and traces the ingenious ways architects have revitalised and refreshed them for a new generation. Most of the renovations occurred in the last decade, but all of the homes have origins reaching back into the past, in some cases hundreds of years. Projects and firms featured include Greenwich House, Allan Greenberg; Longbranch, Jim Olson; Astley Castle, Witherford Watson Mann; Hunsett Mill, Acme; Cotswolds House, Richard Found; plus more than a dozen others. These projects address such timely factors as sustainability, multiculturalism, preservation, and style, and demonstrate the unique beauty and elegance that comes from the interweaving of modernity and history.

Review
'A book that deftly stresses the best-of-both-worlds approach that underlies a tasteful renovation.' --Monocle

'Kristal's book also goes far beyond the average coffee table tome, in that project descriptions are rich with insider insight and a genuine interest in the history and processes that shaped each project.' Wallpaper*

'The projects featured address such timely factors as sustainability, multiculturalism, preservation, and style, and demonstrate the unique beauty and elegance that comes from the interweaving of modernity and history.' --Listed Heritage

'The 18 private historic houses featured in his book certainly draw you in, illustrating just how brilliant and intriguing integrating new and old can be.' - New York magazine's The Cut.com

'It's easy to be drawn to an old building's charm and character, but the reality is, a historic residence is not typically synonymous with easy modern living. In the new book The New Old House, design reporter Marc Kristal shows us how architects are taking timeworn properties and reinventing them with bold contemporary additions... Kristal tours a curated collection of such houses around the world, all more compelling and more livable than they were before their transformations.' Architectural Digest

'Showcasing everything from a converted mill cottage in Norfold to a modernised warehouse in Alabama, it is also packed with inspirational ways of adding space to an old property.' --Homes & Gardens magazine
