Small Apartments of the WorldBook - 2014
A showcase of 30 world-class apartments for modern life in smaller spaces. Small in size but big on space, the 30 apartments shown in 'Small Apartments of the World' provides a wealth of inspiration for architects, designers and homeowners. Addressing the desire (or necessity) to "live small," these petite apartments display spaciousness and functionality in exciting design. The apartments range in size from as small as 346 square feet to 1,000. They are in a diversity of countries -- Italy, China, United States, Canada, Spain, Taiwan, Switzerland, Australia and Iceland -- on all five continents. Each apartment is profiled over several photo-filled pages with descriptive captions and floor plans. They represent a broad variety of architectural styles, functional applications, materials, environments and lifestyles. Despite their size, some accommodate multiple bedrooms. The 30 small apartments includes Australian examples. AUTHOR: Alex Sanchez Vidiella has a degree in History of Art from the University of Barcelona.
