Paper presented at the XXXIII IAHS World Congress on Housing, 27-30 September 2005,"Transforming Housing Environments through Design", University of Pretoria.
The transformation of the ageing, socially and physically declining early post-war housing stock is one of the most demanding housing tasks of this time. Though the consciousness of this task is growing, the level of knowledge of and experience with appropriate approaches is still rather low. To improve the knowledge of and insight in renovation based interventions we developed a method for systematic analyses and evaluation of best practices. We apply this method on the submissions for the 10th edition of the Dutch National Renovation Award, a biannual contest of renovation and reuse projects. We compare the results with earlier findings and discuss the conclusions.
