Malubishi Architects — a firm based in Okayama and led by Ryuji Kajino — embraced the historic aesthetic of a tiny house and transformed it into a studio shed. The space was designed for a client who creates beautiful accessories using dry flowers. The structure houses both rooms for working and living, as well as a tiny warehouse for storage.
Located on a hillside, the homey studio shed "faces out over a valley toward Japans Seto Inland Sea." This provides the tiny adorable house with a wonderful and immersive view. As the house is 80 years old, Ryuji Kajino and his team focused on introducing contemporary elements without disrupting the core of the traditional dynamic.
