One of the major concerns people seem to have about living in Tokyo is its very limited amount of accommodation space—it’s especially difficult when you visualize creating a large and modernized home. Well, the builders at MDS put their creative minds together to create a strategically built home that would optimize the limited plot of land, as seen with the Ogikubo House.

The group built three separate, distinct buildings, all connected through a central staircase. By designing the house as such, the architects were able to include more windows to allow in natural light and include several open spaces and rooms to give a more airy and spacious feeling.

The unique sectioning of the house allows for a beautiful interior flow, and allows for the home owners to feel that they’re in a much larger space than they actually are.
