Adaptive Compact Architecture

The Space-Saving Architecture Used for House Fin is Smart

— February 8, 2014 — Art & Design
If you like rustic, wood-filled spaces and smart space-saving architecture, then this minimalist home is something you should inspire to imitate.

Designing a house in a narrow space is no easy task, but Japanese architect Kenji Ido of Ido from architectural firm Kenji Architectural Studio made it happen with 'House Fin.'

Located in Osaka, Japan, House Fin was designed with space-saving architecture in mind for a couple who wanted to build their house in an urban narrow site. With a garden located on the south side and the three-level building overlooking the green space, Ido was able to provide the couple with a bright and comfortable living space.

Featuring all white walls for space, a birch-wood stairway, shelves and doors for warmth, House Fin is the ultimate space-saving architecture gem.
