The FIKA House by ON Design Doubles as a Store

By: Jamie Danielle Munro - Published: May 8, 2014 • References: & designboom
ON Design has created a house in Tokyo that sells Scandinavian supplies, but also uses these items on a daily basis. To ensure that both the people in the house and the shop were fully functional, the designers merged these two concepts together.

With this design, the residences are able to grab whatever they need from the store and incorporate this into their daily routines. The overall structure works well for the needs of the owners, who don't really have a large work-life separation, considering their house doubles as a store. While this might not work for some, the seamless integration is exactly what the residences were looking for in this design.

For those looking for Scandinavian products in Tokyo, check out the FIKA store.
