The abstract, white exterior contrasts nicely with the exposed concrete of the interior. It’s as if conventional urban landscape was reversed.
Even if you only have a 13.5-tsubo (480 sq ft) plot of land to work with, if you are creative you can legally achieve up to 19-tsubo (675 sq ft) of living space, says Sanpei Junichi, architect of House Tokyo. The white, abstract structure was completed in earlier this year and was inspired by an analytical reading of Tokyo – her streets and the relative relationship between the people who use them.
The façade is coated with a thin layer of insulation and all the openings feature a perforated metal blindfold. The intention was not to create a break between interior and exterior but rather to increase the sense of openness from within. The abstract, white exterior contrasts nicely with the exposed concrete of the interior. It’s as if conventional urban landscape was reversed.
I love the concrete table that protrudes out of the wall.
