Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

An accessible architecture and interiors title in a format and series that appeals to a broad audience. Price point, format, contents and range of subjects are very much in keeping with earlier successful books like S mall Eco Houses, Compact Houses, Small & Chic , and most recently Outside Living. The accessibility of these 55 compact modernist homes - comfortable, green, efficient, ingenious - will resonate with readers of The Design Files, while the cutting edge reputations of their architects will appeal to professionals and students.

A thoughtful collection of small-scale contemporary urban residences - in Australia and around the world - that demonstrate domesticity can be both compact and beautiful, green and urban.
