Roger Hunt is an award-winning writer with a particular interest in sustainable and vernacular architecture and the materials and techniques used in construction.

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.

In early 2017 a group of Irish SPAB Scholars and Fellows joined together to form SPAB Ireland. SPAB Ireland is the newest branch of the SPAB, and is an active and friendly community that aims to protect and promote the wonderful national built heritage on the whole island of Ireland. SPAB Ireland has its own committee, which currently consists of 12 members. If you would like to find out more about SPAB Ireland events and activities, or become a volunteer with SPAB Ireland, please join our mailing list to be kept up to date with current opportunities or email firstname.lastname@example.org
