House in Tamatsu is the type of project I usually don’t post, I leave that to the architectural sites but I was recently contacted by Kenji Architectural Studio about this house and there quite a few design elements that caught my attention. I love how the house stands out from the surrounding houses. Some of these smaller more compact homes are quite an amazing feat of architecture. Creating a home for four people with such a small foot print takes some smarts and planning. I would really like to see these houses furnished I want to see how people live with their stuff. The stairs……pretty cool.
