With Tokyo’s setting up limitations because of small plots of land at extreme prices, you probably can guess builders have to get their money’s worth. In order for MDS to fulfill the consumer’s needs for the Ogikubo House, they pushed the bounds of the property line by developing three packing containers on the edges and connecting them with a central staircase. This prevented having to assemble a tiny development behind a mammoth wall.
The design allowed for residence home windows to be constructed into two sides of each development, giving each a great deal of delicate.
Incorporating the Japanese spatial concept “ma” (Japanese for interval, pause, or gap) all via the residence was important whether or not or not it was creating open areas between the bins or wanting to supply the house-proprietor’s a means of being outside whereas they’ve been inside.
The heights of the flooring differ so the residents entry the areas by means of window-crammed passageways.
