Small SpacesSmall Spaces-Stylish Ideas for Making More of Less in the Home. This book is about living comfortably and using space wisely. Japan is well known for ideas on efficient, sleek, simple classic design. Japan resident Azby Brown, architect and designer, has assembled dozens of creative solutions to maximizing space and reducing storage problems in contemporary homes.
The book emphasizes "The Three Cs”—compact, comfortable, and convenient. Rethinking the use of traditional space is revisited with easy living always the uppermost goal. A living room is opened up by creating level changes or “joining it with the exterior.” A staircase can double as a chest of drawers, a space beneath the floor can serve as a kitchen pantry or hiding place for a disappearing bed: an adjustable table can serve different purposes at different heights. Every room can be transformed to its maximum potential. Illustrated with dozens of full-color photographs, drawings, and architectural plans.
Small Spaces is the perfect book for anyone with growing families, shrinking resources, and limited room to grow,or anyone who wants to transform a disorganized, cluttered environment into an orderly, attractive living area.
