Adaptation Strategies for Interior Architecture and Design outlines a number of different approaches utilized when designing the interior. The book presents a series of processes that are based upon the responses to a space outlined for new occupation. These processes are exemplified by a series of strategies, which filter and synthesize a mixture of information, ideas and resources, in order to form a new, clear and meaningful spatial design.

The book introduces readers to recombinant cultures, methods and processes that explore the importance of context in both its site specific and cultural meaning. It examines a number of approaches that show how the adaptation of existing and, in particular, old buildings, can provide unique and unusual transformative solutions for the historic and contemporary built environment. Each strategy is demonstrated through highly-illustrated case studies and will be contextualised with an introduction explaining exemplary or key developments in other creative and spatially related fields such as installation art, painting, sculpture and furniture design.
