Outline

This is a part of a project to renovate a five stories old building located in a downtown district of Kobe. 12 apartments of standardized design are renovated one by one in a long-term to gain unique features in order to meet the various needs of young generation. Reflecting the recent market demand, it is common to change an old apartment with several rooms into a large studio type apartment, but in this renovation, one apartment is articulated into a maximum number of tiny spaces which provide a variety of cozy places. As a whole, it affords a "secret base" to the dweller in the city.
