Sandwich House

So this is an interesting house, it is pretty tall and voluminous, but in terms of actual habital space it is still pretty small, it has 3 levels but floors 2 and 3 are rather small.  I still don’t quite understand why in many of the Japanese houses I have blog, they all had giant windows  in the bathroom where anyone could look into, but maybe it’s a cultural thing.  Regardless this house a house within it, looking almost like a mini log cabin, it creates and interesting visual element and connects the second and third floor.  I couldn’t figure out what the exact square footage it is.


  1. The outdoor shower option/opening is interesting. ~Alex

  2. I believe that the bathroom has a minor problem. The water taps for the shower and tub are on the outside of the tub. Saw nothing of the view the neighbors would have of anyone showering in it.

  3. Japanese and their bathrooms are much different than here in the US. Many years ago, I worked for a company that was building a 1,000 sq. ft. log cabin in Japan for a family. While they wanted the toilet area enclosed, the grandmother insisted that the two showers and communal tub be surrounded on three sides by floor-to-ceiling windows. They were building in a mountainous area with many other houses nearby. I always thought it wouldn’t matter much as the windows would steam up anyway.
