We frequently extoll the green virtues of small-space living over at Inhabitat, but figuring out how to make limited real estate work for a family can be challenging. EspaceLoggia, a French company founded in the 1970s by actress Brigitte Bardot’s sister, makes modest dwellings work by maximizing the use of vertical space. The modular nature of the company’s furnishing systems also means that they can be adapted over time to respond to changing needs—evolving as your own child grows.
