Triangle Tiny House In Tokyo
Tiny houses can come in all shapes and sizes. We recently came across this unique tiny house that was built in the shape of a triangle. The lot, located on a river in Suginami-ku, Tokyo was considered prime real estate. So even though this house is tiny, it is considered an excellent location and very valuable. This Japanese house was designed by architects at the well known Mizuishi Architects Atelier. It is 594 square feet and fits a family of three very comfortably, as there is plenty of space for the family to spread out and play. The ceiling are loft-style vaulted in a steeple shape which make the home feel much larger than you would think. On the second level, the lofted ceilings make for a great children's playroom, home office or guest bedroom. In order to keep the layout open and spacious the beds are left out in the open like a studio. The architects were also very conscious about the awkward acute angles and used tactics such as bump-outs, skylights and double-height spaces to make them feel less harsh. Building this tiny house was no easy task. It was very difficult to get the proper building codes for such a unique house, but once they were obtained this house went up very quickly.
