Size doesn’t always matter. Take this tiny, triangle shaped house for instance. It’s much more impressive than huge mansions!
This Japanese house is designed by the brilliant architect at Mizuishi Architects Atelier. It fits a family of three in a 594 square foot home. But the catch is that the property is abnormally shaped; it’s a triangle!
Quirky homes like the one you’re about to see below are common in Japan because homeowners and architects are more focused on style than the longevity of a property. Earthquakes are fairly frequent in Japan, and build ing codes get updated every ten years. This results in it being much cheaper for families to rebuild homes versus restructuring existing ones.
The architects at Mizuishi Architects Atelier have done a stellar job with their deceptively amazing tiny house! Take a look.
The house was built on a triangular lot. It was affordable but difficult to build on.
Adding three levels of windows allows for light that makes the space feel bigger.
But cant such a narrow looking space be nice to live in?
The answer? A resounding, “Yes!”
The lofted area provides a great children’s playroom, but it also can be used as an office or spare bedroom.
The vaulted ceilings make the house seem more spacious.
The ground floor is divided into a bedroom, living area, and kitchen.
The beds are positioned in the open to add to the feel of “spaciousness.”
Curtains are added to provide a sense of privacy.
There’s plenty of kitchen space.
Loving the modern design and sleek feel of the house!
Great view of the river too. This property is so enviable!
What do you think? Awesome, right?
