Before the month is over, I have to mention the latest issue of Dwell has as its theme "Smaller & Smarter", which is redundant but represents a welcome continuation of Dwell's coverage of small urban spaces that have a lot to teach. Featured spaces include:
- Erich Sattler Winery in Austria designed by Architects Collective, pictured above ("The courtyard is formed by the traditional L-shaped residential buildings surrounding")
- A 270 sq ft, 4-story apartment in Paris designed by Lode Architecture, pictured below ("I think spatial and technical constraints are good for the imagination")
- A flat designed by LOT-EK that wraps around a central staircase in a narrow West Village walk-up ("We wanted to turn the problem on its head so that the two dark corridors became the most beautiful spaces")
Sadly, none of these made it onto the Dwell website...so subscribe already!
