Notă biografică

MARIANNE SUHR is a Chartered Building Surveyor specialising in the repair of historic buildings. After a scholarship with the SPAB, she worked for seven years in architectural practice, then full-time on hands-on repair projects including three very different old houses. For the SPAB she has run over 40 homeowners' courses and numerous 'limedays'. She is co-author (with Roger Hunt) of Old House Handbook, and has written and lectured extensively. A co-presenter of three series of BBC2's Restoration, she recently set up the Old House Consultancy, advising on repairs and alterations in the Oxfordshire locality. ROGER HUNT, co-author (with Marianne Suhr) of Old House Handbook, is an award-winning writer and blogger with a particular interest in sustainable and vernacular architecture and the materials and techniques used in construction. He is the author of Rural Britain: Then and Now, a celebration of the British countryside, Villages of England and Hidden Depths, an archaeological exploration of Surrey's past. He lectures on building-related issues, is a judge of the annual What House? Awards for new housing and serves on the editorial board of the SPAB magazine. His latest renovation project is a 1900 house on Martha's Vineyard in the USA. THE SOCIETY FOR THE PROTECTION OF ANCIENT BUILDINGS was founded by William Morris in 1877 to counteract the highly destructive 'restoration' of medieval buildings being practised by many Victorian architects. Today it is the largest, oldest and most technically expert national pressure group fighting to save old buildings from decay, demolition and damage. Members include many leading conservation practitioners, homeowners living in houses spanning all historical periods and those who simply care about old buildings.

Recenzii

'Comprehensive guide to retrofitting old houses to be energy efficient' The Bookseller 'Three green cheers for the Old House Eco Handbook ... It mixes an erudite analysis of building science with practical advice and demonstrations of best practice.' Grand Designs 'This beautifully presented book considers the knock-on effects of eco building' Your Home 'an indispensable guide for anyone looking to improve the energy efficiency of their draughty old pile without compromising its integrity.' Grand Designs 'takes a sympathetic approach to eco-renovation, addressing the knock-on effects of everything from improving the airtightness and thermal insulation of the home, to the installation of solar panels. Nothing in life is simple, and such home improvements need to be tackled with care.' Selfbuild & Design 'provides a blueprint for 'retrofitting' historic homes' GQ "a beautifully crafted work packed full of easy to follow and practical advice that explains how older houses can be "tuned-up" to become more energy efficient. Moreover, this book is different to all the other advice you might find because here the wants and needs of the "Old House" are central to the type and method of the enhancements being employed; the protection of the building's historic and aesthetic value being of paramount importance." Surveyors Notebook "authoritative and exceptionally well-researched ... extensive and practical guide ... written with enough detail to appeal to architects and builders, yet in a way that is accessible to the homeowner ... it's a book that should be flicked through with plaster-encrusted fingers, rather than relegated to the coffee-table display." House & Garden 'straightforward language, a must especially for conservation architects' RIBA Journal "I would happily give a copy to each of my clients to help explain the process, principles, good practice, malpractice and alternatives that should be considered ... a great induction course before embarking on a refurbishment so that the homeowner is able to make sound rational decisions ...
