An anthology of small city houses, a typology for which Japan is famous, but examples can be found in metropolises throughout the world. The compact dwellings (ranging from 94 to 180 square metres) featured here reflect the design challenges faced by architects when working with limited urban sites in combination with the requirements of the client.
While experimenting with climate, light, materials, efficiency, and privacy, designers are often forced to be creative when it comes to small houses in the city.
With projects by ALTS Design Office, Yoshichika Takagi, People’s Architecture Office, Fujiwaramuro Architects, Sanden+Hodnekvam Architects, Extrastudio, and many more.
