Townhouse in Takaban by Niji Architects
Townhouse in Takaban is a minimalist residence located in Tokyo, Japan, designed by Niji Architects. The two-unit three-story rental town house stands in an extremely small land of 33 square meters in the city of Tokyo. Lines derived from restrictions of North and the street gave it a gable form. The plan is divided into east and west by a s-shaped parting wall. Laid centro-symmetrically, the two units have the exact same plan. A diagonally placed parting wall and the help of high ceiling gives visitors an impression of spaciousness, masking the small floor area.
