Tiny house / Tiny garden by Equip Inc.
Tiny house / Tiny garden is a two-story house located in Tokyo, Japan, designed in 2020 by Equip Inc.
The main goal of the project was to create a solid garden even on a small site. The site has a floor-area ratio of 150%, which means that we can build up to 116 square meters, but the total floor area is 82 square meters in order to keep the cost low.
Instead of making the area bigger, all indoor spaces could be used on a regular basis, and designed all the rooms, including the entrance and toilet, to be used as place to stay.
There is a living room and a small Japanese room where the family can gather, and when they want to get some distance from each other, they can spend their time reading, looking at plants, or playing musical instruments in the landing, the entrance, and other places.
At the moment, there are only two doors that serve as partitions, so people can feel each other’s presence even when they are far away from each other.It is also important to have a view of the greens from every corner of the house.
In addition to the plants on the site, we created openings so that the neighboring plants can be enjoyed as borrowed scenery.
