The Cass associate Frances Holiss launched her new book - Beyond Live/Work: the architecture of home-based work on 26 March at a packed event on the fourth floor Boulevard of Central House.
Over one hundred guests attended the event where, following an introduction by Dean Professor Robert Mull, there were talks by Frances Holliss, author of Beyond Live/ Work; Colin Davies, Architect and Former editor of Architects Journal; Louise Goodison, Director of Cazenove Architects; Russell Brown, Founding Partner of Hawkins/Brown Architects and Lucy Musgrave , Director of Publica.
Beyond Live/Work explores the old but neglected building type that combines dwelling and workplace, the ‘workhome’. It traces a previously untold architectural history which is illustrated by images of largely forgotten buildings. Despite having existed for hundreds, if not thousands, of years in every country across the globe this dual-use building type has long gone unnoticed. You can read more about this on the event information page.
Reviewing the book for Architecture Today in February 2015, Ken Worpole described it as "a rich and authoritative study of homeworking" which "raises important questions for architects, planners and politicians".
The book is available to buy via The Guardian Bookshop.
