    The construction of small houses is increasing. It is an accessible option, adaptable to any environment, eliminating unnecessary elements to include only basic functions without renouncing comfort.

    Through the pages of this book, we travel to countries across the world to discover a little bit about ways of life in those countries and how this is reflected in architecture. Mountain houses, city houses or on the coast, in many different styles, but all with a common bond; careful construction and well thought out aesthetics to optimise space whilst respecting the environment and integrating the house into its surroundings.

    How Living Spaces Reduced to the Max Can Maximize the Quality of Life

    The desire for as much space as possible on as little room as necessary is neither automatically connected to an alternative lifestyle nor is it a protest against our luxury-oriented society. Sometimes it simply makes life easier, more comfortable, and more economical. The “Tiny House Movement” lifestyle trend, which began in the United States, has spread throughout the entire world, intensified by the construction and financial crisis.

    This title presents contemporary projects from around the world that take on the simple yet challenging task to develop enthralling room concepts and spatial solutions for the efficient use of the smallest living spaces. The furnishings need to be carefully designed and compact to make the most of the available space, such as a bench that can be converted into a bed. These mini interiors investigate the possibility of providing a better setting for everyday living based on what is necessary, what is desired, and what is possible.

    Striking, innovative, and dramatically sited, the twenty-nine projects in Tom Kundig: Working Title reveal the hand of a master of contextually astute, richly detailed architecture. As Kundig's work has increased in scale and variety, in diverse locations from his native Seattle to Hawaii and Rio de Janeiro, it continues to exhibit his signature sensitivity to material and locale and to feature his fascinating kinetic "gizmos." Projects range from inviting homes that integrate nature to large-scale commercial and public buildings: wineries, high-performance mixed-use skyscrapers, a Visitor Center for Tillamook Creamery, the Burke Museum of Natural History and Culture, and the Wagner Education Center of the Center for Wooden Boats, among others. Tom Kundig: Working Title includes lush photography, sketches, and a dialogue between Tom Kundig and Michael Chaiken, curator of the Kundig-designed Bob Dylan Archive at the Helmerich Center for American Research.

    From the Mediterranean to the Pacific Ocean and the tropical idylls of Southeast Asia, this book takes an international trip to the world’s most stunning waterside homes. Photographs of each house reveal its architecture, interior design and surroundings, while plans provide an additional layer of information.

    Dominic Bradbury tells the story of how the dwelling was sited to make the most of its location, how construction innovations were introduced, and how such solutions provide a comfortable space from which families can enjoy the great outdoors. Loosely grouped into three sections, all of these houses – created by leading international architects and designers – offer dazzling inspiration, wherever you are.

    The Pleasure of Reduction Rising rents, the desire for a simpler life, the aim for sustainability, or the wish to posses a relocatable home: These are just a few reasons why the market for tiny houses has become increasingly popular in recent years. The “Tiny House Movement“ lifestyle trend, which began in the Unites States, has spread throughout the entire world driven by the construction and financial crisis. Even though there are many regional variations, all residences of this type share a major feature – on an area of up to 60 sqm (500 sqf) they provide all necessities of life. Nowadays, they are no longer designed by individual solo fighters but also by renowned architects who take on the simple yet challenging task and develop the enthralling room concepts and spatial solutions that are presented in this volume.
