japanese home aluminium 2 - Small Aluminium Cottage

Small Aluminium Cottage


Designed by Japanese Toyo Ito Architects, this compact home is quite impressive both in form and in its choice of materials: a metal exterior finish combined with a warm wood interior design.

Located at Yamanashi, Japan, the elevated structure looks like a metal box with a unique angled roof line.


It has a small yet efficient living area of 614 sq. ft. featuring a space saving layout two-story loft scheme with a lovely zen-like interior design.

    I would like to know more about all of your small houses, as I have a need to purchace a very small home, 1 bed Rm. 1 half bath, with just shower, sink, toilet bowl, living, dining, kitchen , area all in one Rm. with a small compac stackable washer & dryer,
    Please reply, and send plans, i would like to have it on 1 floor level., and i would like it to look like a shed or Sm. garage. on the out side. Do you deliver to Canada, New Brunswick? If so, is it possible to let me know through my E mail, with plans and size, and price, with shipping included. I would like to know if they are winterized, and what size foundation i would instal. I’ll look forward to your reply, we don’t want any thing fancy, just the basic. We are willing to petion it off inside, if that will lessen the price. Thank You so Very Much. Yours Truly, Laura Mcwilliams.
