Impressive Tall and Narrow Home in Japan

Japan is known all throughout the world for its over crowded cities. This is why we were truly impressed to check out this ingenious crib which makes the most out of a very narrow site. The project comes from FujiwaraMuro Architects and is located in a city called Showa-cho. Being given that the construction lot was very narrow, the architecture team had to come up with an idea that would ensure a feeling of space and continuity inside the home. A large, open living room greets the guests and stairs connect the three levels. Even though at first it may appear that the stairs occupy a lot of space, it is said that for the people inside they are not a problem. Either way, we find this to be a very clever project and an inspiring idea that can be applied when it comes to crowded urban spaces.-via +MOOD
