Tunnel House

Tunnel House is a minimal house located in Tokyo, Japan, designed by Makiko Tsukada Architects. (22)

Name: Tunnel House

Designer: Makiko Tsukada Architects 

Location: Suginami, Japan

Tunnel House is a minimal house located in Suginami, Japan, designed by Makiko Tsukada Architects. The two-storey, steel frame residence is constructed on a 49 sqm site. It looks as though part of the structure was cut off like a knife to a cake. The exposed garage area looks as though a car is coming out of a tunnel. The facade of the building is built using flexible board (fiber-reinforced cement board).

The tunnel’s exterior is still kept within an enclosed space, and contains storage and a toilet. The space is indescribable in that even the outside of the tunnel is being used as ramp to the second floor. The second floor appears to float with platforms being suspended by steel rods.

You can’t tell me this isn’t one of the coolest exteriors/interiors you’ve ever seen. It’s rare enough to be enclosed inside a tunnel-like structure, but for it to be a minimalist, liveable home brings envy to my veins. I would give anything to live in a space like this, especially the bedroom, where it almost feels as though the walls are wrapping around you like the forts you used to build back when you were a kid. I also like how the tunnel is being utilized both inside and out, as well as being the interior’s main aesthetic focus.
