located in taito-ku, in the northeastern part of tokyo, the house is enclosed by whitewashed walls, punctuated by windows in different sizes. takeshi hosaka architects has drawn from houses of the surrounding area, where balconies are used as a communication tool amongst neighbors, inverting these platforms to create clusters of social activity within the compact interior.

 

 

placed within close distance to each other, the balconies facilitate different functions: the couple’s bedroom and clothes storage, the child’s space, the guest balcony, and the dressing and makeup area. additionally, a small space on the highest level with access to the roof terrace acts as a mini balcony where children can gather and play, another small area with a hammock for reading and sleeping, and a cloth drying balcony on the south side where laundry can be hung out to dry.
