    I have a very small home studio space, which is a control room/vocal recording area.
    Would I be better be using the 'super chunk ' method, or straddling the corners with panels and an air gap for my bass traps
    opinions greatfully received

    Super chunks reach farther into the lower frequencies. If that is an option, I think that is preferable. They take up space though and it looks like you don't have much of it. Looks like you really only have 1 corner that could fit one. I've heard of guys making super chunks that were smaller but that defeats the purpose. The wall sides of your super chunks should be 2 feet long. Behind your monitors, do you have 2.5 feet from the wall to the door jam (allow some pace for framing etc)?

    No dimensions, but it looks like this 'room' is about 5ft x 11ft? That means no room for superchunks, and not much for standard 2'x4'x4" traps, either. You're going to need as much trapping as you can squeeze in there.
