According to the architectsThe project’s name, “MINNA NO IE” (Everyone’s House), suggests that the house has no strict borders. In Japanese residential district, we have to leave at least 50cm gap between neighboring plots. To make openings towards those void spaces carefully, we can feel the house much larger than its floor area of 54 square-meters.

The 6-meters-high garden room in the middle of the house brings a sense of outdoors with its grey brick floor. When you enter the house, you may feel as if you are back to outside. You may feel as if you would be in a small park in a city somewhere. But the next moment, you will feel the space as interior, where the occupants spend their daily lives. It’s this co-existence that gives the house its unique atmosphere.

Each small room has an open connection with the garden room, no doors at all. The void space works as a catalyst between these spaces and creates variety of relationships among its occupants.
