A small home in Japan makes up for its lack of square footage with a unique architectural angle. The residence itself is built by Hiroyuki Shinozaki Architects and design centered around the kitchen. With this area being a main focal point, there are wooden angled ceilings that make up for the initial lack of color and minimalist interior.
From the exterior, the facade and initial structure insinuate that the interior is just as bland. But the single roof on the outside equals multiple Y segmentations for a cathedral like look. All of the public space is downstairs, and a small area upstairs provides the private spaces.
