Compact Living

How to Design Small Interior Space

by Michael Guerra

Compact Living opens our eyes to the possibilities of living a compact and low-impact urban life.

It is about learning how to live happily with less clutter and embrace the joys in life. Most of our society is struggling to pay the bills while chasing the ideal of a “bigger” lifestyle. Compact Living is the perfect antidote to this, teaching us how to make the most of what we already have through assessing and designing our spaces to suit our needs, as well as future proofing for change.

This is a book of design solutions for small spaces, ideally suited to compact urban dwellings, with each chapter providing useful, basic tools for organizing an entire house and garden no matter what kind of space we live in.

In an insecure economy, smaller mortgages and less social mobility will be a reality, especially in premium areas of the cities. Compact Living is the perfect practical guide for people interested in the Voluntary Simplicity, Tiny Homes, and Downsizing movements, and anyone who wants to rationalize the space in which they live in an ergonomic and aesthetic way.

A powerful perspective to anyone who wishes to live with less debt and more freedom!
