Tatami Home is a minimalist floating house located in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, designed by Julius Taminiau Architecten. The home is characterized by built-in storage and furniture in order to maximize the small space interior. The architect was inspired by traditional tatami rooms from Japan in order to guide the proportions of the internal layout. Tatami mats have similar proportions to plywood panels, which were used abundantly throughout the space. An open staircase serves as a partition separating the the living area from the dining room and kitchen.
