When a couple approached Mizuishi Architects Workshop with a triangular property in Japan, located between a river and a road, and the dream of building a house they could live in with their young child, designer Kota Mizuishi knew he had to get creative. The results? A 594 square foot house which looks small on the outside, but is incredibly spacious on the inside.
To begin with, it is two stories tall. Not what you expected, right? The first floor is where you will find the bedroom. When only the family of three is at home, the space can remain open to everyone. However, when guests are visiting, a sheer curtain provides privacy for the owners and creates a space where some of life’s most complicated moments can remain hidden. But just up a thin staircase, guests will feel right at home.
The second floor houses the kitchen and living room. The cooking space is tucked away in the corner of the house, which almost feels like a room in its own right. If you look up there is a children’s playroom accessible by ladder. This loft also has two skylights that allow natural light to enter the common area during the day and can serve as a comfortable stargazing nook at night. Just a thought.
