Mini House Cover

 

Staff Pick

Tired of McMansions? Take a gander at Mini House, which features more than twenty-five tiny houses, lofts, and studios designed by top architects. The emphasis is on light, storage, and usability with high-quality materials. Integration of architecture with nature is also emphasized, to bring the outside into the living space. Most of the buildings are European, which shows that local developers could learn a thing or two from this book.

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The increased demand for space has created a shortage of unused land to build on. This book represents a fascinating look at 25 small houses belonging to international architects whove demonstrated their ability to take full advantage of every square foot available. Projects range in size and include work like the Keenan Tower house, a home-office in New York city, the Phillips House in Chicago, the Moore Honey House in North Carolina and more.
