4.0 out of 5 stars Great book, but houses not that small!!
Great book about eco houses and anyone interested in the ecological approach to housing will like it! BUT the title "small" probably refers to people who are used to having a "normal" sized house of over 250 square metres (2,700 square feet), because here the author presents houses of 150 sq. metres (1,620 sq. ft) as small! There are only 13 houses of under 100 sq metres...

3.0 out of 5 stars Small Eco Houses Book
I am an architect by profession and purchase books from Amazon Uk.
What made me make this purchase was the cover of the book, It had a promise of what was to come beyond (at least thats what I thought)

Unfortunately the book does not include much inspiring work.
The printing quality in architecture books should be very accurate and of good quality to...

This review is from: Small ECO Houses: Living Green in Style (Paperback)
Great book about eco houses and anyone interested in the ecological approach to housing will like it! BUT the title "small" probably refers to people who are used to having a "normal" sized house of over 250 square metres (2,700 square feet), because here the author presents houses of 150 sq. metres (1,620 sq. ft) as small! There are only 13 houses of under 100 sq metres (approx. 1,100 sq ft) out of the 40 presented in this book, so if you're like me in thinking that a small house is considered to be in the size of 60 square metres and under then you'll be a little disappointed.
Overall, this is a great book with beautiful pictures which explains in general what makes each of the buildings 'green' and eco-friendly. And even though the houses are a little bigger than I expected I am still happy I bought this book! :)

I am an architect by profession and purchase books from Amazon Uk.
What made me make this purchase was the cover of the book, It had a promise of what was to come beyond (at least thats what I thought)

Unfortunately the book does not include much inspiring work.
The printing quality in architecture books should be very accurate and of good quality to appreciate the nuances of space. This book however is affordable but the printing could have been improved.

No work within the book comes close to the quality of the house on the cover.

PROS:
1. Price

CONS:
1. All the projects look similar
2. Cheap Print quality
3. Not inspiring (at least for me)
