Bungalow vs. Architect

Bungalow: From Heritage to Contemporary

Bungalows may be beautiful but they can also be belligerent: resistant to change and difficult to extend. And yet the humble, low-slung bungalow is one of the most common housing typologies that architects are called upon to coax or wrench into shape. This isn’t always done considerately – but how to do it better? This panel discussion between architects Pete Bossley, Megan Edwards and Graeme Burgess all in the soon-to-be-released book Bungalow will debate their own, and others’, successful approaches to extending and renovating bungalows. The discussion will be led by Nicole Stock, editor of the Random House publication.
