Providing a resource for anyone looking to create more usable space within their home, NLA's first publication to illustrate the annual Don't Move, Improve! award details each of 2014's 44 shortlisted projects, with additional emphasis given to the winning schemes. The magazine showcases a range of solutions at a variety of budgets, completed within London’s distinct typologies – from Victorian to Georgian, through to 1950’s stock and more modest industrial buildings.

Excerpt from the introduction

Providing more usable space is a key concern for London’s homeowners, especially while house prices continue to spiral. Instead of moving on or upsizing, the projects detailed in the following pages sought to enliven and expand the clients’ existing homes, creating spaces that better meet their needs.

Selected by an eminent jury, they display innovation and creativity in the creation of new space, sustainable and cost-effective approaches to project delivery, and overall, contribute high quality design that adds to London’s rich mix of architectural styles. 


By Debbie Whitfield, Director, NLA
