We’ve kind of been on a Japanese architecture bender lately. So we were predictably excited to find this project from Kobe-based Tato Architects. Located in Futakoshinchi, Japan, were we struck by the unassuming context, humbly tucked away in an alley. But a closer look finds a serene and playful use of light and an embrace of small, comfortable spaces. We’re particularly in love with their use of a step-stool as part of the staircase; A great opportunity to integrate that bit of craftsmanship and character to the space.
