redesign

To change the way something looks or functions is to redesign it. If you use a wheelchair, you might need to redesign your new apartment to make it easier to get around.

An architect might redesign a school building so it meets the current codes for being accessible — adding elevators, ramps, and new bathrooms, for example. Or you might redesign your dorm room, simply by moving the furniture around and attaching a disco ball to the ceiling. Clothing designers, in turn, sometimes redesign old favorites, like when they redesign jeans so they have a higher waist or a slimmer fit.
