Contemporary Design in Detail by Yanna Chan
Book DescriptionThis series provides a powerful presentation of the most challenging and evolving architectural and design categories. "Small Environments" focuses on the type of architectural details that make up distinctive residential spaces under 1,200 square feet (120 square meters). It presents recent work by architects from around the globe in colour photographs and architectural drawings. Rather than simply another compendium of small projects, the book is structured according to categories of architectural detail. It includes sections on components essential to the design of small spaces, such as built-in pieces, mobile systems, storage, outdoor rooms, siting strategies, and daylighting details.
