Architect Junichi Sampei, from A.L.X., designed a unique house in Yokohama, Japan. The Dancing Living House is siting on a 1,224sqf site and you can see that it is more a sculpture than architecture.
The house’s project extends itself out from its tight plot, resulting in a volume which takes advantage of clever slices and openings to illuminate its interiors. It has three levels, where the architect managed to combine the needs of a dance studio with those of a home.
On the street level you can see that there is enough space for parking cars. The entry staircase leads to the studio which is also the living area and kitchen. In order to make the room feel bigger mirrored panels were installed an all four walls. The third level hosts the bedroom and bathroom, which are above the dance studio between two strips of transparent glass floors, that ensure natural light into the lower storey.
The Dancing Living House is an interesting and sleek place to both live and work in.
