Cozy House by FORM / Kouichi Kimura Architects

Built at a small site crowded with houses and surrounded by narrow roads, the Cozy House is a boxy residence with a grey exterior and compact enriched inner spaces.

The upper volume is protruded toward the front road to the best possible extent so that the maximum volume can be secured for the use of the living room, dining kitchen, and small versatile room.

The ceiling height is varied to produce visual expansion, and several openings are designed so that light comes in from various positions.

Inspiration from architect:

The comfortableness, which is produced by the small space and would hardly be realized by a broad space, is a major fascination of this house.
