She practised architecture for over 40 years, during which time she identified the need for this book, which was first published in 1997 and her vision is as relevant today. Jonathan Hetreed and Ann Ross have drawn from years of experience of running a small practice in Bath to update and extend the scope of the new edition to reflect continuing revisions to regulations and the increasing demand for sustainable construction methods.
