15-tsubo (49.5㎡) sized luxurious residence

This Japanese-esque residence combines retro and modern vibes.

We packed in many different life functions into this rather small area of 49.5㎡.

A bench is placed next to the island kitchen. Rather than saying the balanced interior makes it feel spacious…

It’s more accurate to say that one can sit on the bench by the window for a chat, giving the space the same relaxed feeling as a large mansion.

Design themes

・Extremely small building

・Kitchen and bench

・Decorative shelves and a tea cabinet that put hobbies on show

Since 2004, I have cooperated in disseminating the technology of "disaster prevention town development" as a lecturer and counselor by answering to various anxieties and questions for earthquake resistance in plain words. In
2007, I transformed a 400-year-old traditional Japanese building to a local after-school.
Utilizing the "consensus building method" learnt in the above described cases, sharing designs and opinions with clients in a plain manner, I work on spacial design that can be used for commercial and welfare activities as well as housing.
