LIVING OVER THE STORE: ARCHITECTURE AND LOCAL URBAN LIFE was published in 2012 by Routledge/UK. It describes the history, architecture and socio/economic characteristics of one of the most common urban buildings: the mixed-use building that combines dwelling (usually above) with commercial space (usually at ground level). This building has historically been an important element in urban inclusion, allowing families to make the most out of a single piece of land, often by combining family life and work in the same place.
