House in chiyosaki by Coo planning

July 24, 2015

Shaped by its small and narrow corner plot of only 8 square meters, ‘house in chiyosaki’ in the Japanese city of Osaka was developed by coo planning.

Despite the scale, the design has maximized the available area ensuring that the inhabitants do not feel confined.

The home’s program is distributed throughout a modest footprint over two main levels. the heart of the dwelling is a double height, open area comprising the kitchen and living room.

Clad in vertical timber panels, the first floor is 4 meters high.

The interior continues the use of wood, with a narrow staircase winding upwards to the bedroom and a small patio.

Although narrow, the architects were able to use height as a main feature to fully explore the limits of a constricted site.
