I love all of this. I so want to live in a beautiful inner city space, with some sort of a connection with the outdoors, brick and timber, big windows and gas cooking, storage abundant and close to all the things I love...city, business, ideas, culture, creativity, entrepreneurs, history, progress.... I don't care for too much space. It requires more effort to maintain, and less interaction with surroundings. Just well designed and thought through, with enough space to play, cook, create, and have friends enjoy it too.
