When life gives you lemons, make an orange smoothie!

At the end of the day, like everyone else, I like to take some time to surf the web before setting down my phone and calling it a night. Recently, I came upon Amy Frearson’s article about the Promenade House by FORM/Kouichi Kimura Architects.

The Promenade House is located in Shiga, Japan and stands at about 81 feet long and only 8 feet wide. Being said, this makes this home one of the thinnest homes on Earth!

When constructing this building, space no doubt was limited, just like everywhere else in Japan! However, that didn’t stop the architect team from building not only a comforting home, but one with a modern yet functional twist. The home was designed for a young couple whom finds everything they ever needed within the space.

Would this contemporary home suit yourself…or is it on the claustrophobic side?
