Triangle Tiny House In Tokyo
Tiny houses can come in all shapes and sizes. Â We recently came across this unique tiny house that was built in the shape of a triangle. Â The lot, located on a river in Suginami-ku, Tokyo Â was considered prime real estate. Â 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 knownÂ Mizuishi Architects Atelier. Â It is 594 square feetÂ 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. Â 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. Â 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.
