The design agency Eastern developed a unique shaped house which looks a bit like an iron. Despite its visually too small living space, the project contains seven apartments.
This project was implemented in the town of Yokkaichi, Shiga, Japan. Building area is 2809 square feet and living area about 6100 square feet. Since the shape of a house is triangular, it was expected that the rooms will have sophisticated forms. But they are not. They are square shaped, as usual. Each apartment in the four-story house offers a living room (140 square feet), two bedrooms (140 and 96 square feet), a bathroom, a kitchen and a toilet. The building plot was empty a long time because of the specific, acute angle street crossing. But architects from Eastern found the perfect solution to the situation. They acquired the land for a ridiculously small amount of money and multiplied their investments many times thanks to their flexible thinking. However, the project is not entirely unique. Everyone knows the Fuller Building in New York. We attach it for you to compare at the end of the post.
