978-0-7643-5130-3Schiffer Publishing, Ltd., is pleased to announce the release of Condo Makeovers: Inventive Ideas for Vertical Living by E. Ashley Rooney with Charlene Keogh and Julie Lineberger featuring condo renovations, from making a ceiling look taller to sculpting space with light.

High-end condo and apartment renovations have their own special challenges. Lifestyle changes, space limitations, board and management approvals, frequency of usage, flexibility requirements, re-sale value . . . these are just a few of the issues to consider. Rooney showcases a wealth of solutions sure to inspire and educate anyone contemplating a condo or apartment project.—Anne Marie Soto, Consultant ASID NJ Chapter



For those interested in creating a one-of-a-kind home in a condo or apartment building, this book offers a voyeuristic peek at the way people design, construct, and accessorize these often challenging spaces. Thirty beautifully photographed projects illustrate how their designers overcame the constraints of high-rise living to enhance the owners’ comfort. Learn how one architect brought elusive light into the center of a condo in Washington, DC’s Dupont Circle neighborhood, visit the “stair bridge” in a Vermont ski condo, and observe the visual tricks used to open a Florida penthouse to ocean views. See how designers are raising the bar on an increasingly popular housing type, whether it is an urban pied-a-terre or an airy condo on a California beach.
