The Best of Small Spaces

Small spaces have been on our mind (check out our June 2009 "Think Smaller" issue), and they’ve also been on the minds of the American Institute of Architects.

The Accessory Building by mcfarlane green biggar Architecture and Design was designed as a small office in the midst of a residential neighborhood in North Vancouver, British Columbia. At 269 square feet, the building is the maximum size allowed as a non-parking use accessory building.

The national architects’ association recently honored 20 architecture and design firms by naming them recipients of the fifth annual Small Projects Awards. The projects range from homes to offices to bus shelters but all share the theme of efficiency. Click the “View Slideshow” at the top right-hand corner of this post to view eight of our favorite projects from the pool of honorees.
