    How We Live Now is an inspiring guide to making the most of every square inch of your available space.




    When the housing market takes a dip, fewer of us move as we just can’t afford it. That’s the time to take a long hard look at your home and work out how to make the most of every room – even every corner. Perhaps you’re trying to carve out more space to accommodate a growing family, or maybe you’re wondering where you can squeeze in a home office, a utility room or a kids’ playroom. Whatever your particular needs, in How We Live Now Rebecca Winward explores ways to make your home work harder for you. She explores open-plan living, opting for more flexible room configurations, and using pockets of ‘dead space’ – under the stairs, on the landing or in the garden – that have unrecognized potential. Multi-tasking furniture and smart storage both have their role to play, as does versatile lighting. Streamline everyday life with How We Live Now.

Practical tips on such topics as choosing a palette, balancing function and style, and living better with 'stuff' show you how to imbue your space - whether a rented apartment or a cottage in the country - with the essence of you.

    Publishing status: TEMPORARILY OUT OF STOCK

    People have been living in small spaces for centuries, for reasons of practicality, mobility, flexibility or personal choice. More recently, tiny homes have become the answer for many who need somewhere affordable to live and who possess the creativity and energy to make something different. A small home can be relatively cheap to build or convert, and gives its owner choices, reflecting the way they want to live and their concern for the impact they have on the environment. Tiny homes can also be stunningly beautiful and imaginative. They ask their owners to be discerning about what belongings they have – what is necessary and what is beautiful. The choices are individual and can be seen as part of a movement away from money and property-slavery to a more simple and connected way of living. Gill Heriz has brought together a collection of some of the most incredible small homes, from containers in the city to cabins in the countryside. A traditional Mongolian yurt provides off-grid living for its owners, and a portable cabin offers a chic, flexible space. There is a reclusive shack set in woodland, a converted mountainside bothy, and a log cabin pod near the coast. What all the owners have in common is dedication to living well on a smaller footprint.

    For over twenty-five years, Kerstin Thompson has explored how architecture can respond to local conditions to positively shape lives and communities.

    Kerstin Thompson Architects: Encompassing People and Place takes readers on an immersive journey into the very heart of this extraordinary body of work, and documents how, over time, the practice has shifted its focus from individual housing to larger-scale public projects created by a collaborative and talented team. With high-quality images, sketches and drawings selected from Thompson’s archive and discursive texts, this monograph provides a deep insight into not only what architects do – the buildings they make – but also why and how they design.

Deyan Sudjic, Director of the Design Museum, decodes the underlying forces that shape the urban spaces around us, from their buildings to their names, from the power of crowds to why being a Londoner, New Yorker or Muscovite can offer a sense of identity greater than any other.
