ALTS Design offer another beautiful compact space, returning to Shiga, Japan to create “Higashihayashiguchi Dwelling + Shop.” The wooden structure brings together a ground level cafe and a first floor home, both sections accessible through separate entrances. Open plan on the home level, the architects have created a series of stepped areas for dining, working and sleeping, exposed clothes rails and plenty of shelving taking care of storage, the café level downstairs a simple, unfussy affair. See it all in the gallery.
