In this unusual book, 30 architects present a recent, compact home in words and pictures. Their ingenious and often highly original residential projects show that aesthetic and architectural value doesn't have to come with a hefty price tag. During the selection process, the jury also focused on the compactness and practicality of the design. This book is a unique source of inspiration for discerning readers with building plans. The house selection is preceded by two short essays by the experts Marc Dubois (B) and Liesbeth Melis (NL).
