Itabashi is a minimalist residence located in Tokyo, Japan, designed by Naruse-Inokuma Architects. The three-story 200 sqm residence is a shared unit with a cantilevered volume overhanging the entrance and a balcony space on the second level. The home is characterized by a centrally located wooden staircase that contrasts against the dark flooring and white walls. The staircase also serves as an opening to allow natural light to flow throughout the levels.
