n house／House in Niitsu Higashi
This smaller house made for a couple with two young children is a balance between cost and efficiency, taking into account what is necessary for a home and the couple
living in it while cutting out the excess.
A simple, unadorned box that is the landing for the staircase and also serves as a table and storage space allows for a multitude of extra household activities to take place.
The children's area of the house provides room for adult-sized, moveable furniture, letting the children decide how they would like to arrange the room in the future.
In ways such as these, bold decisions and clever ideas create a highly functional house at a low cost without sacrificing style. Finally, situated on a street where the majority
of the houses are located away from the road, creating an impersonal feeling, this house stands right by the street, allowing for the owners individuality and style to shine
