Stockholm-based firm Elding Oscarson collaborated with local architects Koichiro Tokimori and Osamu Kato to design this pied-a-terre in Tokyo, Japan.
Built on two-level house, the house is mostly designed in an open plan and offers large multipurpose spaces for its inhabitants. Despite being only 60 sqm, the place feels spacious and airy, with plenty of natural light flooding the rooms. Notice how the windows wrap around the house, giving a 360-degree view of the surroundings. Some of the 35-year-old garden on the plot was preserved to offer some privacy and a leafy oasis.
Elding Oscarson stayed true to their signature Scandinavian minimalism, while bringing a warm and tactile Japanese touch.
