Narrow House In Japan Proves Tiny Homes Can Be Awesome

It’s also about smart architecture and design.

Tiny homes are popular today among millennials and young couples. The small structures do have their appeal. They are easier to maintain, are cheaper to build, and encourage a simple and minimalist lifestyle. You see, having a small space doesn’t mean you can’t have all the basic amenities and enjoy living in your cozy home.

Just take this tiny, narrow house in Japan, for example. From the outside, it certainly looks small, but the interior is impressive.

The house was designed by Mizuishi Architects Atelier.

It looks really small from the outside, but it features all the necessary rooms and features of a normal-sized house.

The 594-square-foot tiny home is based on a triangular site between a river and a road

The outside design is very straightforward and modern.

The triangular house has two floors.

The architects did a good job with the layout of the house.

The bedroom is on the first floor.

The sleeping area can fit big beds to ensure a comfortable sleep.

The kitchen and living room are on the second floor of the house.

The kitchen is fully equipped, so delicious home-cooked meals can be made and shared here.

There’s also a mezzanine level accessible by a ladder, and it serves as a playroom for kids.

Children can also enjoy living in this tiny home, thanks to the cleverly constructed play area.

All the walls are painted white and large windows are installed, which help make the house look more spacious than it actually is.
