Couple in the Heart of Tokyo on 18㎡ House.

Japanese architect Hosaka Takeshi is specialized in designing mini-sized houses. The new house of the Hosaka couple located in the heart of Tokyo covers a floor area of 18 square meter, which is not much bigger than a garage.

In the house they squeezed in 300 volumes of book, 300 vinyl records, a two door refrigerator… To ease the sense of crowding, they have two curved skylights which let in light day and night, and they have an outdoor bath.

“Everything in the house is smaller than the regular size, but they are just as easy to use and that makes me very happy with my life.”
