This is open-plan living! The Small Box House project by architecture firm Akasaka Shinichiro Atelier was designed to be adaptable. The barn-like building has a footprint of just over 600 square feet but includes multiple open mezzanine levels and lofts accessible by stairs and ladders.
The open plan building in Sapporo, Japan is currently functioning as a home — but the owners eventually want to turn a portion of the living space into a neighborhood cafe. The open space gives them lots of flexibility when they are ready for the next phase of design!
