Moving into the central areas of cities is becoming increas - ingly trendy for people of all ages. Contemporary adapta - tions of the traditional narrow and multi-storied resi - dential buildings, of London and New York for example, townhouses are the embodiment of this renaissance of urban living. This home type allows its inhabitants to fully enjoy urban life with all its possibilities but also to with - draw from it just like in a single-family house. To create enough living space on the typically rather small pieces of land, the rooms have to be layered and connect - ed. These prerequisites are main characteristic features of townhouses, constituting a special creative challenge for architects and designers. This volume presents projects in very different contexts, showing the great diversity of their functional and design possibilities.
