This book starts on the front cover and ends here, with no empty pages in between. Why? To maximize the space available. That is what this book is about. With the largest houses in the world and ever increasing suburban sprawl, we need to consider building smaller and more space efficient homes.

By showcasing 45 examples of space-challenged housing, Stuart Harrison explores how the constraints of space often result in innovation, such as the 46 square meter empty carpark in Surry Hills, Sydney, on the cover, which became a five storey 165 square meter dwelling with a rooftop garden. This exciting collection of homes demonstrates that bigger is not necessarily better.
