Abstract: Post-war residential areas make up the majority of the housing stock across Europe and are under significant pressure to develop further. Most of them are in need of renovation and, due to their urban composition, encompass large open spaces which seem to provide space for further development. At the same time, they present valuable historic witnesses. Densification efforts should therefore always consider and respect the overall composition of the development. For the first time, this workbook offers planners and historic preservationists as well as municipalities, city administrations, cooperatives, clients and owners a comprehensive guide to assessing and preserving the qualities of post-war residential developments due for densification.
