The smallest house in the world?
Well, it may not be the smallest house in the world with a whole 55m², but on its plot of only 29m² it is already one of the smallest houses in the world. But you'll be amazed at what you can do with this space. In Tokyo, the lack of space is the reason for such things.
The tiny plot
Since the plot is only 29m² and has a triangular shape, the family had to make the best of the situation. After all, the price of the plot was quite low, because no one thought that such a great house could be built there.
Exactly in the middle
On one side borders the shore, and on the other - the street. Exactly between them had to create the living space for a whole family. Even at the front there is still a huge window - every square meter was used optimally.
Good that the whole family has something to do with this business. From the interior decorator to the builder to the architect, everything is represented in their own family. Probably that's why this house was not really a big problem exactly for this family.
The living area
The unique view of the river gives the family a lot of pleasure. However, through the huge windows you can see inside. So you could feel quite quickly observed in this house.
The river is a risk
As you can probably already imagine, a house on the river is associated with risks. So here, too, is an increased risk of flooding. Of course, this must be avoided, which is why the house was made flood-proof.
The entrance area
When you go in, that's what you see. So you obviously have the sleeping area on the first floor. The space was used optimally, under the stairs you can wash your clothes. A staircase leads upstairs to the upper floor.
You really don't have to do without anything in this house. A wonderful bedroom in the middle of Tokyo. The quality of the used raw materials also seems to be great.
The view from your bed
You even have the option to completely separate this room from the rest. If you look closely, you can see the curtain and the possibility to close it completely. This also ensures privacy.
Privacy looks like this!
This way, the rest of the family can use the rest of the first floor undisturbed, without disturbing the sleeping parents. Besides, you do need some time off and a place to retreat. Here the curtain is closed.
For such a tiny house, the bathroom is surprisingly large. The light shades make everything look more spacious. You can even take a shower and a bath!
The narrowest part of the house is used for storage on the upper floor. The possibilities are, of course, significantly limited with these dimensions. But the best was made of it.
The upper floor
The meeting place of the family. This is where most of the time is spent, so there is plenty of seating and the kitchen can also be found here. Even a workplace can be found here.
Small but nice
The ceiling heights are relatively low because the building had to be raised. This is because there is another loft area above this floor. The view is also impressive.
The kitchen is significantly larger than some kitchens in larger apartments or houses. The dining area is also located here and invites you to eat comfortably.
Above the second floor you can see the small but nice loft. With almost 10m² you have a beautiful view of the dining area.
Even the offspring has its own space. The kids obviously can't complain here and there is room for everything that is needed.
It's warm upstairs!
Warm air rises to the top, so it is relatively warm upstairs in summer. But you also have the best view in the whole building from here.
The house at night
Doesn't this look cozy? Despite the size, you have created a great living space. No one expected to be able to create something so great on the small area.
Would you like to live here too?
What do you think? Would this house be enough for a whole family?
