The remarkable feature of the home is that it does not feel cramped; in fact, the house is quite spacious on the inside. The super skinny Honmachi Residence is located in Shibuya and has three floors covering an area of 70-square-meter.

The straight metal panels on the outside give the house a sleek look while a shaded porch on the front leads to a recessed front door. The home is fitted with windows on all sides that allow the natural light to filter in.

The architectural firm kept the wall dividers to a minimum to retain the spacious feel of the structure. Slight level changes like a few stairs distinguish one room from the other. The pristine white walls reflect light and two skylights allow the natural light to penetrate deep into the house.

  1. Ho;;and has houses no more than two meters wide. I have personally seen one in Amsterdam and one in Utrecht. They were built in response to the tax laws which were based on frontage along canals. There, they are described as being “One Window Wide.” Like this house they are several stories tall. Many houses there are narrow but tall and deep.
