Small Homes, Grand Living: Interior Design for Compact Spaces uses colour photography to capture properties from across the world that inventively and effectively use space.

Comprised of over 250 pages, the hardback book profiles urban living and how people are being challenged to optimise space in their homes as cities become increasingly populated.

The book, published by Gestalten, is arranged thematically. Each chapter highlights a different space-saving method, from clever seating to multifunctional staircases and made-to-measure storage.

Projects featured include a Spanish residence by PKMN which has moveable shelving units that allow it to be transformed into a design studio in minutes, and a three-metre-wide home in London that has been wedged in between two Victorian terraces.
