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.
