Interior designers are increasingly faced with the challenge of designing within small spaces. This compilation of projects from around the world pays special attention to the particular features of each space, the end result being determined by the pre-existing features and thus creating the optimum living experience. The property's location within the city, the building's architectural characteristics, its structure and the lighting and ventilation conditions are points of departure for the interior designer. 27 homes are presented here, some genuinely tiny while others are more accurately described as spatially constrained. Inventive examples abound, such as the Layer House (split into three levels), the Locher Apartment structured around four tree trunks and Tavola, the Japanese house on stilts. All the houses contribute to exploring the fundamental tools for understanding how architects, designers and owners of small apartments approach a project involving minimal living space
