ALTS Design Office Completes the Higashihayashiguchi Dwelling

The Higashihayashiguchi Dwelling and Shop is located in Shiga, Japan, and completed by ALTS Design Office.

The building is extremely slender and multifunctional, featuring a cafe on the ground floor, with a spot for dwelling above. It's amazing that the team managed to do this much with such a small space, and overall it still looks to be quite spacious. ALTS Design Office used a whitewashed look for the outside walls, with wooden accents found on the interior of the cafe. The spot for living on top is also quite small, but it still offers a comfortable place to stay, using an open concept to keep the area looking larger than it actually is in the end.
