Abstract:

"In an age of "McMansions, " this international survey of the latest in residential architecture proves that small is beautiful - and responsible. The houses profiled are designed to make maximum use of the smallest possible footprint in order to protect the environment." "The houses featured here prove that efficiency as well as beautiful, thoughtful design can be had in a tiny setting. Each project includes a case history describing its design challenges and how the architect overcame them, a detailed blueprint, and full-color photos of the interior and the exterior." "This book will be an inspiration to anyone in the interior design or residential architecture field as well as to those considering a second home and proves that environmentally responsible design principles are not just a style but a philosophy for sustainable living."--Jacket.
