Outline

The "Apartment with a small restaurant" is a project to create an open living environment by focusing on "small economy." This "small economy" refers to actions involving others through pleasurable exchanges, as well as work and business. The site is in an old town in Tokyo. The building consists of five SOHO units, a small restaurant and a shared office space. The SOHO units are connected to the common hallway accessed via a multipurpose space called a studio. The small restaurant is open to both the town and people of the apartment, which is run by a cook and any local residents who love cooking. It can also be used as a meeting space for SOHO users and the shared office users. In an open living environment, interchange within the building and with the outside world has started in a very natural way.
