FujiwaraMuro Architects. Shintaro Fujiwara and Yoshio Muro like to build up when designing especially if you can't build out, but when your home is built on an area of barely 36 square metres, you need to make every inch count. Tall and slim with its rooms wrapped around a central shaft for light to pour in through, this house’s ground floor is dedicated to little more than a storage room and space for a single car. The living room, kitchen and dining areas can be found on the second floor while two modest bedrooms are up on the third. Despite having only a few windows at the front and rear of the property, light entering from above prevents the building from feeling claustrophobic. . . . . . .
