The people of Japan are popular for their skills in micro-innovation. They also have had to overcome the hurdles of having some of the costliest housing in this planet. However, now
they are finding new ways to accommodate by turning to the ancient building forms. Kyosho jutaku which means shack living is what the trend now being followed is but in a much bigger way by creating Micro Houses. One such micro house is the Riverside House that has been created by Kengo Kuma, an architect, and has a footprint that is not bigger than a usual UK parking space but still is spacious enough for 2 adults and one child. The building rises above 2 floors and has natural light and offers great comfort and elegance.
