Lessons From A Little Flat In Japan

leave a comment »

In Japan, much like Singapore with our apartments and condominiums, there are apartos (apartments) and there are mansions. Mansions here are not bungalows like you might intuit, but are instead more like apartments without swimming pool/tennis court etc. An aparto is in a usually fairly old two story building. A mansion is usually a newer building and built higher. Something of a rare sight in Singapore these days.

Seen on Apartment Therapy, this Matsudo Mansion by design studio BAKOKO embodies renewal and opening up of cramped space. I think we can all find inspiration in the tight constraints of this wonderful apartment.

You want to do your work here. (No Jedi mind tricks needed)

A touch of personality with the planter box

Note the soft light above the door

Nothing red here officer

Now you can deck up your shower too

On a not so related note, here’s how to get out of bed and changed for work in under 5 minutes, and have a breakfast to boot. Cheers!
