Designed as a concept by Muji, this coworker apartment is purpose-built to house two employees at the same company. Created for the annual House Vision exhibition, this concept prototype was conceived as a thought experiment to reimagine how people could live together in a super-dense city. Designed by architect Go Hasegawa, this unique apartment was created with his employees in mind, who can spend up to three hours on their commute to work.

Split between three different levels, the coworker apartments features a lower level communal space, complete with a kitchen, lounging area, and cubbies for storage. The middle room serves as an entertainment area and features a steel frame to support the lofts above. The final loft areas are meant for sleeping, but also feature storage space normally found in a bedroom.
