now this is narrow

Posted on Tue, 23 Jul 2013 by KiM

I am always intrigued by narrow homes as I live in one and wish it wasn’t, so it’s always interesting to see how people design around narrow spaces and how homeowners cope. FORM/Kouichi Kimura Architects managed to build a minimal masterpiece on a piece of land that is 4m by 35 m, making it a total of 2.7 m wide and 27 m long. I love all the grey – on the exterior and in the gorgeous hardwood and concrete flooring. Soft walls made of curtains are brilliant to keep the space from being too cold, and are great space savers. I’d certainly be taking cues from this home if I had to build a narrow home when rebuilding (thankfully my lot is “normal” size). (Thx Aimee!)

That is so beautiful. For me, very liveable. Would I have more goods and bits of color spread around? Sure. But those are some d*mn good bones.

I really like it!

De las limitaciones, una obra de arte arquitectónica. Mu gusta la combinación de funcionalidad y estética.
