Japan has long been a playground for residential architects, who have to be extra creative in order to squeeze the maximum amount of space into restricted plots. This small but perfectly formed house in Yokohama designed by Shinsuke Fujii Architects is no exception.
The 3/4 storey building sits on a plot measuring only 42 square metres but manages to create 75 square metres of light and airy space. The sense of space is enhanced by a generously proportioned mezzanine on the first floor and a double-height living space on the second floor, well complemented by the extensive use of concrete and restrained furnishings, which create a zen-like minimalist vibe. Oriel windows wrap around the entire frontage of the building on all floors, flooding the interior space with light and providing beautiful views of the cherry blossom filled park across the street. The cantilevered bay windows also create useful seating space inside, perfect for contemplating the cherry blossom trees in full bloom.
