|Big cities are becoming more and more attractive
as places to live, both nationally and internationally. The modern city represents a platform for contacts and mobility, for challenges and change. As a result, many
european metropolises are registering a renewed trend towards living in urban space. But many big cities still have a surplus of available
office space, while well-placed, attractive and reasonably priced apartments are lacking.
This book not only presents model residential buildings by wellknown architects, but also innovative concepts that highlight future
perspectives for redundant office buildings. Their conversion into attractive apartments represents a challenge to architects, investors and residents.
