I know that 900 square feet is spacious to many of us but I think it’s an appropriate size for families. I’ve seen this video before a couple of months back but wanted to post it here in case you haven’t seen it.

They call it the Penguin House and it was designed by architect Yasuhiro Yamashita.

The most unique feature of the home is how the architect designed light to come in through various places by creating windows on all corners of the house. This helps it feel larger than it is and also helps brings the outside space in.

It covers just 322 square feet as a lot but the floor space is 899 square feet to be exact. Yamashita makes rooms feel larger by utilizing space that’s usually wasted, including a floating kitchen cabinet and the most interesting staircase.

The house also features high ceilings with light coming in through all rooms. It has three stories which includes a music studio and more. Enjoy the video below.


I encourage you to watch the video tour below:
