Dreams in Miniature
Homeowners fall in love with small spaces every day. See a tiny grotto cottage near Miami, a charming loft in San Francisco, a stylist's live-in salon in New York and an upside-down renovation in L.A.

When most people think of adding on to their homes, they usually build up or out. Not architect Bernardo Charca. He lifted his original house and built a new structure underneath! In doing so, he created an open floor plan with huge windows and skylights to bring the light, air and warmth of Venice, Calif., right into his home.
