Located in Nishi-Tokyo-shi, a suburb of Tokyo, Japan this 96.69 square-meter home was created for a single family with one child.

Designed by Japanese architecture firm Upsetters Architects, the spacious home has two levels but an open plan that lets in lots of light. The family wanted a home in which their daughter could grow up so they divided the floors into living space and “daughter space.” The daughter’s space has a mezzanine room that can be accessed from the first floor, which can be used for her studies, but is currently used by the couple for working. I love that the parents considered the needs of their daughter when building a custom home. I remember when I was a tween and teenage girl – it’s nice to have your very own space.
