This House Is A Small Wonder And It Will Leave You Amazed

Raising a house at river-front site is a dream of every architect. There was such a site. But there was trouble.  The site for this house was sandwiched between a river and a street, located at a junction- hence it had a triangular shape with acute angles. A group of architects at Mizuishi Architects took up this challenge and the result was brilliant.A 29-square metre plot was made into a masterpiece in Suginami, Tokyo, in Japan.  See the plan and construction unfold before you.

Just look at it once!

The real challenge was not the acute angle but the surface that the plot had to offer.

Just 29- Sq.M. and a masterpiece surfaces

River on one side and the street on the other.

The upper story is created in steel. A cantilever is created to make a perfectly sheltered parking space.

The ground floor plan

The ground floor has a bedroom that ensures privacy with curtains - a Japanese style bedroom.

A store is also located here, which is covered with white blinds.

A luxurious bathroom is on the ground floor.

As you go up on the first floor, there is a wonderfully lighted kitchen with its very own dinning space.

Important thing about small spaces is that if you allow ample light to enter, they look bigger and spacious.

The kitchen and dining room have high ceilings to let the light in, which make them look bigger.

Having lights on either side gives a spacious look as one walks from kitchen to living room.

From the kitchen, you can see a mezzanine floor.

The roof is triangular and gets adorned with skylights at night.

The use of small space to such perfection is rarely seen. Share this amazement with your friends too!
