Published by Gestalten, Vertical Living: Compact Architecture for Urban Spaces presents a fascinating range of compact homes and houses around the world. The richly illustrated book allows you to explore houses and skyscrapers built in incredibly narrow places, as well as lovely mini-apartments with more space than you might think from the outside.
The era of moving to the suburbs is coming to an end. Instead, a growing movement of city dwellers are looking for grand architectural solutions in the smallest of spaces. Slender, slim, and tall structures are soaring in the limited land available, offering innovative solutions to a world with ever-growing urbanization.
Vertical Living is an introduction to the architecture and interior masterminds using skillful, clever design to conquer compact living wherever there is space. As we continue to expect more of our flats and houses, unexpected approaches are necessary for the future of our urban spaces.
