Stainless Steel Style
Architect Hideyuki Yamashita and homeowner Takayaiki Matsumoto designed this Tokyo home using optical illusions to make the small space feel larger. Glass and transparent materials physically divide the space while visually keeping it open. The kitchen is built on two levels and has a simplistic and sleek design of stainless steel that hides life’s chaos.

Style can appear in surprising ways. These recycled airline cargo containers provide flexibility as storage units and room dividers. They also play in well with the sparse, industrial aesthetic of the house.
