Stuart Harrison writes about residential architecture again, this time exploring how the constraints of space often have the most innovative results. With the largest houses in the world and ever-increasing suburban sprawl, we need to consider building smaller and more efficient homes. By showcasing 45 examples of space-challenging housing, including (as the title suggests) a 46 sq m empty car park in Surry Hills, Sydney, which became a 5-storey 165 sq m dwelling with a roof top garden. This exciting collection of homes demonstrates that bigger is not necessarily better.
