Groundbreaking designers are revolutionizing high-rise living and creating stylish new vertical villages in the world’s greatest cities. This is the first interiors publication to focus primarily on high-rise homes – timely and inspiring reading for anyone who aspires to stylish city living

‘With an elegant format and stunning images, this is the ultimate coffee-table book for the design savvy’ – Homes & Gardens
‘There is plenty of inspiration to be had from the case studies featured’ – Designer Kitchen and Bathroom
‘Gives unprecedented access to the world’s most stylish apartments from Mumbai and Buenos Aires to Moscow and Tel Aviv … an enticing journey through an innovative design approach’ – Church Building

To be at the centre of a great city such as London, Hong Kong, New York or Mumbai is to feel at the heart of the world. Yet as our cities continue to expand at a frenetic pace, land for new homes is in short supply, as is the sense of belonging to a local community.

The new vertical village offers a stylish solution to urban living, with communal spaces that foster interaction between neighbours and designs that conserve land, energy and materials. Thanks to cutting-edge designers, architects and developers, these new high-density urban complexes are reinventing city living as a luxurious and desirable lifestyle.

Vertical Living

Produced in collaboration with leading lifestyle and interiors developer yoo, Vertical Living gives unprecedented access to dozens of the world’s most stylish apartments, lushly illustrated with 140 colour images and accompanied by an extensive project directory. The book also features new interviews with top international designers such as Philippe Starck, Kelly Hoppen and Marcel Wanders, who give exclusive insight into the art of creating beautiful, innovative spaces for urban living.
