Roger Hunt is an award-winning writer with a particular interest in sustainable and vernacular architecture and the materials and techniques used in construction. He is co-author (with Marianne Suhr) of both Old House Handbook and Old House Eco Handbook. His book New Design for Old Buildings (co-authored with Iain Boyd with a foreword by Kevin McCloud) explores how effective contemporary design can give new life to the historic environment. He is also the author of Rural Britain: Then and Now, a celebration of the British countryside, Villages of England and Hidden Depths, an archaeological exploration of Surrey’s past. Roger lectures on building-related issues and is a judge of annual awards for new housing. His latest renovation project is a 1900 house on Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts, USA.

About SPAB Ireland

SPAB Ireland was established in 2017 as the inaugural Irish branch of the SPAB. Following the return of several recent Irish SPAB Fellows and Scholars to live and work in Ireland, the lack of an SPAB presence has been acutely felt. After a successful open meeting in February 2017, we have established a committee and have started planning how we will bring the SPAB philosophy and ethos to Ireland.
