The New Old House presents 18 private historic homes, from North America to Europe, and traces the ingenious ways architects have revitalized and refreshed them for a new generation.

Most of the renovations occurred in the last decade, but all of the homes have origins reaching back into the past, in some cases hundreds of years. Projects and firms featured include Greenwich House, Allan Greenberg; Longbranch, Jim Olson; Astley Castle, Witherford Watson Mann; Hunsett Mill, Acme; Cotswolds House, Richard Found; plus more than a dozen others. These projects address such timely factors as sustainability, multiculturalism, preservation, and style, and demonstrate the unique beauty and elegance that comes from the interweaving of modernity and history.

Praise

"A book that deftly stresses the best-of-both-worlds approach that underlies a tasteful renovation."
Monocle
"The 18 private historic houses featured in his book certainly draw you in, illustrating just how brilliant and intriguing integrating new and old can be."
 
New York magazine’s The Cut.com
“It's easy to be drawn to an old building's charm and character, but the reality is, a historic residence is not typically synonymous with easy modern living. In the new book The New Old House, design reporter Marc Kristal shows us how architects are taking timeworn properties and reinventing them with bold contemporary additions….Kristal tours a curated collection of such houses around the world, all more compelling—and more livable—than they were before their transformations.”
Architectural Digest
Kristal’s book also goes far beyond the average coffee table tome, in that project descriptions are rich with insider insight and a genuine interest in the history and processes that shaped each project.…The New Old House is a very welcome insight into a strand of architecture that deserves far more than second tier status.
Wallpaper* magazine
“… a sumptuous, inspiring collection of homes that fuse past and present in the US, UK and Puerto Rico (and including Lorcan O’Herlihy’s renovation and adaptation of the Raphael Soriano-designed home of the late Julius Shulman)."
KCRW
“As a former filmmaker, the writer Marc Kristal is a natural story teller, which enlivens his 18 case studies about adding contemporary additions to old houses.”
Architectural Record
"Showcasing everything from a converted mill cottage in Norfold to a modernised warehouse in Alabama, it is also packed with inspirational ways of adding space to an old property."
Homes & Gardens
“Kristal’s book is the No. 1 New Release in Energy Efficient Remodeling &Renovation at Amazon, where it also ranks among the Top 20 Best Sellers in the same category. ‘The New Old House’ has been featured in numerous global magazines, including Architectural Digest, Monocle and Wallpaper, which called it ‘a very welcome insight into a strand of architecture that deserves far more than second-tier status’.”
The Florida Times-Union
“Kristal's text is not particularly predictable or 'coffee-table' in style....the book has a real, personal quality that gives it judgments a further dimension.”
The World of Interiors
“In his book The New Old House: Historic & Modern Architecture Combined, Marc Kristal features homes that have beautifully blended new and old architecture, and demonstrates how to change up your own historic home by introducing modern fixtures.”
American Farmhouse Style magazine
