This book is a selection of projects of the current ubran living space, from apartments designed to be refuges to diaphanous lofts conceived as places for experimentation and leisure. Apart from the variety of styles and programmatic requirements, all of them have something in common-- the search for what is truly necessary from a living space.

In the complex fabric and at times chaotic nature of the city, the contemporary home shies away from the superfluous and focuses on the individual and one's needs.Unique projects have been selected which reflect new ways of inhabiting and experimenting with distribution, materials, textures, and light; projects which are examples of interior micro-urbanism, of how a design can mould a space to make it personal, functional, and aesthetically pleasing. The possibilities are endless.
