The Near House by Mount Fuji Architecture is an ultra-thin marvel. This gate house was designed with the hopes of squeezing an extra area into a crowded Tokyo neighborhood.

Some features of the Near House interior include two floors, wooden shelves and a ladder stairs. The entire site takes up 66.42m2, with only 37.65m2 occupied by the building.

The width of the Near House is about 1/4 than that of a standard Tokyo home, making for an extremely petite living space.
