Close Quarters is a digital publication dedicated to exploring existence in small living environments. The individuals featured in this magazine have created lifestyles that push the boundaries of the human need to utilize space. From ecological concern to financial necessity, these spaces serve unique functions for those who inhabit them. In a consumer-driven society, these spaces defy our conceptions of what constitutes a home. Purely through design, these people prove that even the smallest of places can be comfortably inhabited. This issue uncovers a world made bigger by spaces made smaller.
