The Japanese Way of Enhancing Living Space: House in Matsubara

This faceted steel building occupying a surface of only 47 square meters is more than enough for the living needs of a family in Osaka prefecture, Japan. Developed by Japanese studio Fujiwaramuro Architects, the home has an original exterior shape, one that seems to follow the contours of the roads. A sloping roof visually contrasts the curving lines of the lateral walls. The overall appearance of the residence pays tribute to its industrial character of the neighborhood.

The ground floor accommodates the main entry, a music room for the wife who is a gospel instructor, and a bathroom on the way to the second story housing the living, dining rooms and kitchen. The dining area is the lowest of all, yet offers panoramic views of the neighborhood rooftops. The third floor contains the children’s and master bedroom, with access towards a terrace. Would you personally characterize this place as “homey”?
