Building maintenance for apartments 1880-1980
Stellan Ridderstrand , Vicki Wenander .
Building care for apartments has its origins in the rise of the modern city during the late 19th century and allows us to follow the development of the Swedish apartment decade by decade, until the end of the 1980s. By highlighting how political forces interacted with aesthetic ideals and construction engineering achievements, the book provides a unique insight into why our homes look the way they do. From how residential areas are designed and facades have their appearance, to the divisions of the rooms, the colors of the walls and the specific profiles of the skirting boards. In an easily accessible way, you gain knowledge of the rich history that hides behind the perhaps worn floors or flaking tapers.
The second part of the book consists of an extensive chapter entirely devoted to the practical aspects of renovation and apartment maintenance. Concrete strategies are presented here for how to approach and relate to issues related to care and renovation, as well as concrete tips on how best to proceed when faced with the need to restore or replace something.
Building care for apartments is an indispensable tool for anyone interested in caring for their apartment and its history
