Cool Small House From Japan

Here at Humble Homes we have a keen interest in tiny and small houses, and today we’d like to introduce you to an awesome one all the way from Tokyo, Japan! This small houses is located next to a river on a triangular plot of just 312 square feet and is designed by Mizuishi Architect Atelier.


The house has a floor plan of just 595 square foot! The interior is made to feel spacious through the use of an open plan layout and large windows flanking both sides of the living area. The minimalist interior helps to create a sense of order and tidiness in the relatively small home.

  1. Hi
    Where can I find your homes locations and prices? Interested in simplicity

    Hear back from you

    Thank you

    1. Hi Marina – we sell the construction plans for the tiny houses and modular houses only. Any pictures of those houses are from people who have built them, so unfortunately there are no show homes.

    1. Hi Gillian – Unfortunately I don’t think the plans are available for purchase, or at least there was no sign of it on the architects website.

  2. I’m inspired by you art and artistry.
    wishing you the best!.
    I’m an interior designer and I love creative spaces which challenges function and use.

    again, praises to you!
    one in art,
