Tokyo Vertical House by MUJI

Dec 4, 2019

Category: Living

When you live within the city limits, chances are pretty good you won’t be able to build out, but rather up. That was the exact concept behind the Vertical House in Tokyo.

The talented designers at the Japanese retail company MUJI have created a home that fully maximizes the small space offered up on a small plot of land. To do this, MUJI designed a residence that spans over three levels high, with absolutely no doors or walls used throughout. This gives the dwelling an open, airy feel while also making the small living space feel much larger than it actually is. A central wooden staircase provides easy access to each of the floors starting from the floor level utility and storage room, leading up to the mid-level kitchen and living room, and ending up at the top-level sleeping quarters.
