Small house by Kazuyo Sejima

Located in one of Tokyo’s most attractive areas, this small house is situated on an extremely small lot. Designed by Japanese architect, Kazuyo Sejima, this house is a family home, divided into 4 specific spaces

and distributed on 4 floor slabs.
By joining the differently sized and shifted slabs with walls and windows, the architect created a truly unique architectural form for this house.
An open staircase is the main element connecting the spaces while softly sub-dividing them even further. Since the house is very small, each space was defined exactly for the family needs; bedroom, extra space for the child, living/kitchen/dining area and terrace with bath.
