Overview

In an age of "McMansions," this international survey of the latest in small-scale apartment and loft design proves that small is beautiful-and responsible. The 51 projects included here maximize every inch in order to make the most of a small space, and many are in environmentally sound "green" buildings. The apartments and lofts profiled here prove that small-scale efficiency as well as beautiful, thoughtful design can overcome the apparent constraints of a tiny setting. Each project includes a case history describing the challenges that confronted the designer and how these constraints were overcome (or sometimes even became a centerpiece of the final design). Each project showcases the latest design trends and creative solutions to turn small spaces into comfortable and modern homes. This book will be an inspiration to anyone in the interior design or residential architecture field as well as to anyone considering a small-scale apartment or loft. Moreover, it proves that environmentally responsible design principles are not just a style, but a philosophy for sustainable living regardless of the size of the project.
