Clever Small Home Architecture Derived From Site Restrictions in Tokyo

The River Side House is an impressive project designed by Mizuishi Architect Atelier and located in Tokyo, Japan. The small home was constructed on a triangle site and occupies a building area of 29.07 square meters. According to the architects, the structure of the residence includes functionally separate areas, as follows. The first is the dining & kitchen area, situated up the stairs and having high ceilings with a feeling of rise towards the roof top. The living space is low ceilinged and has full-opening windows on both sides of the bay, ensuring a feeling of floating. There is also a generous spare room to the east, for having guests over. The interior arrangements of this residence are minimalist and tasteful. The walls are painted entirely in white, inspiring openness and tidiness. Wooden accents and splashes of color here and there add a happy tone to the design. Do you find this project as intriguing as we do?

    […] Who would have thought a house that literally occupies a building area of 29.07 square meters could look this big from inside. I keep getting fascinated by how tiny houses are way more efficient than their bigger counterparts. Most houses like this one are located in Japan.

    […] The River Side House in Tokyo, designed by Mizuishi Architect Atelier. I love the architect’s use of the top attic space for a childs play area, keeping the space safe for kids with railings, but still allowing lots of natural light to pass through.
