Small Apartments of the World

A showcase of 30 world-class apartments for modern life in smaller spaces.

Small in size but big on space, the 30 apartments shown in Small Apartments of the World provide a wealth of inspiration for architects, designers and homeowners. Addressing the desire (or necessity) to "live small," these petite apartments display spaciousness and functionality in exciting design.

The apartments range in size from as small as 346 square feet to 1,000. They are in a diversity of countries -- Italy, China, United States, Canada, Spain, Taiwan, Switzerland, Australia and Iceland -- on all five continents.

Each apartment is profiled over several photo-filled pages with descriptive captions and floor plans. They represent a broad variety of architectural styles, functional applications, materials, environments and lifestyles. Despite their size, some accommodate multiple bedrooms.
