Living in smaller houses is a growing trend worldwide as land prices rise and people want to have a smaller ecological footprint and live with less stuff. Catherine Foster shows us 21 Australian examples under 90sqm.
Small House Living Australia features 21 small, inspiring Australian homes. Some are clever additions onto tight urban sites: others are tranquil weekenders in deep countryside – what all have in common is a shared belief that good architectural design principles make even the smallest of architectural and ecological footprints possible.
With land ever more expensive, growing environmental pressures and an increasing number of small households, architects and designers are responding with great ingenuity to produce both practical and cost-effective buildings, and all the while never sacrificing the most essential of human needs – a beautiful home. The houses you will discover in Small House Living Australia are celebrations in built form of lives lived well, with less.
