House Call: Atago House

Name: Atago House; Small House Design Lab
Location: Hiroshima, Japan
Size: 1195 sq. ft.

Even people not all too fond of modern minimalism should find something to like in this modest sized home from Small House Design Lab which squeezes 1195 sq. ft. out of a 506 sq. ft. plot of land. The feat is achieved by its verticality and the intelligent use of built-in storage and interior architectural features (small space living is all about storage), giving the interior space a great sense of possibility and potential (these photos have been obviously staged without any occupants, so the minimalist effect is a bit exaggerated). And how we love that expansive table that stretches out from the kitchen out to a raised platform, giving the occupants a place to dine in both Japanese and Westernized fashion...
