The Home Upgrade, edited by Tessa Pearson & Gestalten
Gestalten is a unique publisher that is actively reimagining the industry. With an extensive range of titles, the brand not only seeks to enhance and to enrich readers' lives, but to continually engage with the surrounding creative landscape. Gestalten began with a focus on the aesthetic, particularly that of graphic design and, over the last two decades, has broadened the scope of its content. Today, the brand uses observations of culture, people, and art to document vital movements in architecture, visual culture, design and fashion, escapism, food and beverages, travel, and contemporary art.
Against a backdrop of growing cities and a changing approach to how we live, there are many reasons to refurbish a home. Our buildings must continue to evolve along with us—and that takes a little imagination. The Home Upgrade looks beyond big budget projects and explores homes where the seemingly impossible has been achieved. Historic conversions celebrate the unexpected relationship between old and new, and adaptive reuse projects reinvent the buildings around us. Exploring the most extraordinary transformations of recent years by leading studios, The Home Upgrade is an exhilarating look at the boundless possibilities of reimagining a home.
