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!
