Description

Any urbanite has faced the challenges of limited living space. This valuable survey of the latest in small-scale apartment and loft design features the best examples of smart and chic urban living from the most fashionable cities around the world. The apartments, lofts and small houses 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. Creating colour schemes to enhance the feeling of openness, taking advantage of high ceilings to make multiple levels, and using movable furniture and sliding doors to maximise space are some of the clever solutions that anyone can apply to their own homes. Full of color photographs and helpful floor plans, this book is a remarkable showcase of the latest design trends and creative ideas to turn any small space into a comfortable and modern home. It is an inspiration to anyone in interior design or residential architecture, as well as to anyone looking to improve and revitalise a small-scale home.
