Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

While tiny homes are rapidly becoming a necessity in our ever-growing world, they're also a creative outlet, an opportunity for designers and architects to test their ingenuity and flex their aesthetic muscle. The 54 homes and apartments in 'Small & CHIC Interiors' demonstrate these traits, showing the trends, new creations, and ground-breaking ideas currently flourishing in micro interior design. By utilising every inch of space in ways that are not just practical but aesthetically pleasing, the designers of 'Small & CHIC Interiors' turn potentially cramped, gloomy homes into comforting spaces full of air and light. A sample of the ambitious projects include a medieval granary on the outskirts of Rome converted to modern living quarters, a cosy and compact home on a secluded island in the North Sea, a Bulgarian apartment renovated on a budget of only 500 Euros, and a single-room Manhattan studio given new dimension by a large piece of folding furniture that converts to dividing walls, storage space, and a work station.
