It’s said not to judge a book by its cover. The same goes for houses – especially this tiny one in Japan!

Designed by Mizuishi Architects Atelier, the 594-square-foot house is based on a triangular site between a river and a road. It looks really small from the outside, yet it is surprisingly more spacious from the inside than you’d expect. The triangular house has two floors, with the bedroom on the first floor, the kitchen and living room on the second, plus a little family playroom on a mezzanine level accessible by ladder. All the walls are painted white, which makes the whole place look more spacious and light. Check out some pics below!
