in a dense tokyo suburb, japanese practice flat house completes the tokyo bud house which contains living quarters and a biscuit shop on a very constricting footprint of 26 m2. the residence is in reality one open space. while rooms are typically divided by walls, the various programmatic elements here are divided by 7 split-levels and the only partitions that exist are the exterior walls. the layered floors respond to a contemporary lifestyle- people want to move quickly from one space to another yet remain connected to the whole. there is no dedicated media room as people tend to obtain all their information from personal devices. the inhabitant can therefore change levels and find privacy simply by moving through the home. the two polygonal skylights insure plenty of natural light throughout the levels as well as various views. from he ground story, a concrete staircase leads down to the biscuit shop, which although located under ground still feels open to the street.
