Memory Lane

This is Memory Lane in Tokyo. It’s a little slice of old Japan, but it’s bars give it another, far less romantic name.

I’ve been taking a walk down Memory Lane at the Duck Egg Blue house today – the Befores page is now a Before & Progress page. Thanks for the memories li’l house, and thanks in advance for the memories still to come!

Small spaces: Japanese angles

Through necessity, the Japanese have developed a very refined style of “small spaces”. I could stare at houses like this all day long.

An odd shaped site in Tokyo pushed the design of this house well outside the normal box. I have so much admiration for architects who can have such a vision within a truly challenging brief. Hats off to Mizuishi Architect Atelier.

The interior feels surprisingly uncluttered despite appearing to house a family and accommodating a fully functional kitchen.

Found at Dornob where there is loads more information and pictures.
