How do you maximise living space in increasingly small and expensive apartments that are being built in cities around the world?
This stunningly illustrated book reveals how renowned architects – including Stephen Alton, SA Architects, David Hotson Architects, and Gary Schoemaker Architects – have solved this problem in their designs for small apartments and lofts in New York, San Francisco, Boston, and other major cities where residential square footage is at a premium.
These design solutions focus on innovative, multi functional uses within small spaces: a dining area by night, an office by
day; living rooms that morph into party spaces or media rooms; and freestanding closets that conceal everything from kitchens to beds to workstations. The projects exhibit excellence in design, along with their innovative use of materials and construction methods. Each case study – accompanied by design drawings that include site plans, details, and floor plans – includes sumptuous interior and exterior photography by some of the finest architectural photographers working today.
