This Japanese small house with ingenious design by Mizuishi Architect Atelier is impressive project. This Japanese small house is called the River Side House and located in Suginami, Tokyo, Japan. This Japanese small house was constructed on a triangle site and occupies a building area of 29.07 square meters. Here is description from designer: “This is a very small house built on the triangle site which the river and the way were crossed and made to the acute angle.For the dead-end road, it became a plan in various regulations for obtaining special permission. Residents are husband and wife and a little girl. Although it was a novel site of a limited area, since a river was faced through a bank and a promenade, I would like to build various relations with the river. The building is the form that cut an acute angle part on a triangle plan derived from the site.Furthermore,it got the maximum volume of hip roof of three planes in restriction of setback-line. Although the level0 floor was a private space,it limits for dividing with the curtain of a race in the door, stairs, storage, etc. except for a bathroom. It enabled it to feel a spread. The level+1 floor is devided into small areas by structural narrow walls,being connected with one by the ridgeline of a roof.So there are different open feelings and the relations with the river each.
1. Dining&kitchen/The west side space up the stairs is the largest planarly, and has high ceiling with a feeling of rise towards the roof top.
2. Living/The central space is low ceilinged,and has full-opening windows on both sides as a balcony and the bay window that spreads outward with a feeling of floating
3. Spare room/The east side space in the deepest is a form which is narrowed down to the direction of flow of the river,and is a space watching the light to insert earlier of the abyss.
4. Loft/The space with two skylights is a space looking down at the river and looking up at the sky. For more info on Japanese Small House with Ingenious Design by visiting at Mizuishi Architect Atelier.
