The best in vertical architecture from impossibly slender homes in narrow plots to the art of spacious design in compact infills

The era of moving to the suburbs is coming to an end. Instead, a growing movement of city dwellers are looking for grand architectural solutions in the smallest of spaces. Slender, slim, and tall structures are soaring in the limited land available, offering innovative solutions to a world with ever-growing urbanization.

What People Say

"Vertical Living, published by gestalten, travels the world showing these narrow houses, from tiny dwellings to skyscrapers, and offers an introduction to architecture with an ingenious design to conquer compact living wherever there is space."

ELLE Decor

"In increasingly congested cities, the only solution for building new homes seems to be to exploit every free space, however small. A challenge that has given rise to ingenious and surprising architectural solutions for small houses rising upwards, from Europe to Asia, now collected, narrated and photographed in the new book by gestalten (...) Far from being stopgap solutions, these buildings explore new horizons in residential architecture and aim to offer maximum comfort to those who live in them."

Corriere della Sera

"Homes built between buildings, in abandoned lots, or grown like parasites in and on top of other buildings. The housing emergency can have spectacular solutions, in which limits act as a stimulus for the creativity of architects. With an eye to sustainability, flexibility and sharing."
