Located in a densely built-up centre of Funabashi, northwestern Chiba Prefecture, this sombre, minimalist residence was developed by a a Japanese architectural practice fuse-atelier in 2010. Supported by a reinforced concrete structure, the three storey 91-square-meters house comprises a large and airy open-plan living room and kitchen area, a light-flooded bathroom, as well as an office space and an adjacent outdoor terrace.

More about the project:

 

‘The outskirts of the site are the irregular blocks where there are houses and apartments. The client had a house near this land, but he chose this more convenient site. It was the planned site of 70 square meters of built-for-sale houses that divided one site into four. The client requested that 70 square meters of sites were the space of the house, and the living room and bathroom were large, simple and beautiful spaces where internal space and outside space were united. They assumed that they will use the first floor as an office several years later.’

‘From the present conditions of the site, I reduced the window of the outer wall as to avoid the eyes from the outside as much as possible. Considering the height regulation, I set the space of the house by setting a 6 meters wall along a boundary line of site. The client requested to secure a living room and a bathroom as big as possible and to unite them with outside space. The living room is united with a terrace when opening a big sliding door partitioning off a living room and a terrace.’
