千住の家 The House of Senju(Narrow space housing)
都内に建つ小さな専用住宅である。下町の住宅密集地で「敷地面積は9坪」であった。住宅密集地ではあったが、思い切って南側を全面開口とし、外部を内部に積極的に取り入れた。また、内部空間を分断させないこと、空間用途に適した高さを持たせることにより、狭小住宅といった枠を超えた、通常にはない空間の広がり・豊かさを持つ建物となるように意図し設計した。 

This is a small house built in downtown Tokyo.
The area available for construction was 29.18 m2 (3.7 m × 7.9 m) which is a rare case even for Tokyo downtown.
Even though built on limited surface, this small modern house was designed with the traditional Japanese space approach, which does not give the cramped feeling, but rather creates attractive feel of openness.
• The internal and external spaces are not divided visually/aesthetically;
(To create the feeling of airy space, a traditional Japanese garden typically situated in front of the house was visually incorporated into the design. In Japanese, this method  is called syatsukei. )
• Rooms are not completely separated;
(So as to not visually divide the rooms, glass or traditional sliding doors were used)
• The ceiling of the rooms was devised to seem higher;
When coming into a room with a high ceiling from the one with a low ceiling, you feel the space spread up high. By changing the ceiling height from 1.9 m to 2.1 m / 3.4 m / 4.3 m, the spacious feeling is created.
