With large homes quickly becoming a thing of the past, this is becoming the era of smaller, more-compact residences. Whether a small house or a houseboat, these modest spaces can present a unique set of design challenges. In this installment of The Seattle Architecture Foundation’s 2012-13 lecture series, Developing Community Through Design, a panel of experts—architect Gene Morris, of Lagerquist & Morris; architect Michelle Linden, of Atelier Drome; and Yasmine Kiss, resident of Cottage Development; and moderator Paul Schlachter of Olson Kundig Architects—delves into what goes into the design of small houses; the related property-development considerations; and what it takes to live in one of these unconventional, yet inventive, spaces. Presented by the Seattle Architecture Foundation.
