The footprint of this home in Tokyo, Japan is only 26 square meters. The entire house is divided into seven levels with no partitions. All levels are connected by a staircase in the middle of the house. Although each split level is small and there is little room for essential furniture, each room feels adequate and spacious. Almost all of the interior surfaces are made of larch plywood, and each panel is cut into a parallelogram and laid out in a herringbone pattern. Since every room is so small and without walls, this can be an advantage – residents can quickly switch from one room to another. So many advantages and style despite the small footprint – that’s mastery!
