Compact house from Unemori Architects Unusualthe compact house was designed by the architects of the Japanese company Unemori Architects. A small house where a married couple lives with a child is located in the lively district of Tokyo. Neighboring houses are very close. Nevertheless, the architects managed to develop a project adapted to the constrained conditions of a big city. The author placed a small house with dimensions of 4x4 m in the center of the plot of 34 m² so as to provide the interior with the maximum amount of natural light and fresh air. What he did was practically a 9 meter high tower. The inner space is divided into four floors, which are connected by a spiral staircase. The used floor covering has a small thickness (only 70 mm), so the upper and lower boards are adjusted so that no joints are visible. Nothing prevents free entrylight and air inside the house. The windows are located on the side of the roadway. The author of the project harmoniously entered them into the architectural appearance of the district. The windows are so large that opening or closing them leads to a significant change in the appearance of the rooms. Sliding doors are installed on the second and third floors. When they are open, the room is filled with light and fresh air. There is a feeling of lack of walls. Having provided for thin ceilings and large windows facing the street, the designer seems to have erased the boundaries between the floors of the house, between the internal and external spaces, the building and the city. How do you like this idea of a spacious but compact home for a large metropolis?
