A 3m Wide House? As Long As You Aren't Too Claustrophobic...

The Showa-cho House in Osaka Japan is an amazingly airy residence despite its miniscule 18m x 3.9m lot. Architect Fujiwara Muro made incredible use of the limited space available by building up and splitting the home in half with a staircase, which acts as both a transition space and delineates the private and public sides of the home without a wall. Plenty of daylight flows in, and a simplified modern interior streamlines the space, adding a tranquil feeling to a home dictated by a ten foot-wide interior dimension.
