Small is "in" and so is living "green," as proven amply in this international survey of the latest in residential architecture and interior design. Over 51 residential spaces - from woodsy houses and even repurposed barns to cool urban apartments and lofts -- all designed by leading international architects are profiled both inside and out. Each project includes a case history describing the design challenges faced at the site and how the designer overcame them, along with a detailed blueprint for each apartment. The common denominator for each project featured is that the owners wanted to incorporate green solutions in order to transform their small space homes into cool, hip homes that are as ecologically sound as they are well designed. Creative and thoughtful design solutions for every room and every aspect of the home are carefully and thoroughly presented through numerous detailed tips and photographs. Almost all of the living spaces featured prove that efficiency as well as beautiful, thoughtful design can be had in a tiny setting. Indeed, the book proves that what could seem small and cramped can in fact be all the space you need if designed right, and allthe while with an eye to being sensitive to the environment. This book will be an inspiration to anyone in the interior design or residential architecture field as well.
