Yaita Associates Makes the Most of a Space Near Tokyo

Yaita Associates have completed a house near Toyko in Japan, and had to work with a smaller space that was designed a number of years ago. Certain slits were placed in strategic areas throughout the house, allowing for better ventilation and sunlight to get through.

The house itself is mostly white, and very minimalist. This approach seems to be quite common with Japanese houses, as if the simpler the design the better one's mind will be able to concentrate on other tasks at hand. Other than the strategic slits placed in the home, elongated windows have also been used to let the natural light to shine.

Even though Yaita Associates were forced to work with such a small plot of land, they still managed to design a functional, modernized abode.
