Squeezed Space-Optimizing Structures
The Ogikubo House Consists of Three Different Buildings

By: Tana Makmanee (Superstar) Jan 8, 13

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.
