Muji is a Japanese company dedicated to organization. While the company makes apparel, shoes, and a full gamut of unique products, it’s most incredible offerings are its boxes, coat racks, and other items that simplify life.
It’s that penchant for organization that led has led Muji to design its own home. The company has created a three-story prefab home in Tokyo that embodies the growing brand’s aesthetic and design philosophy.
Dubbed the Vertical House, it takes some styling cues from a treehouse, with different levels being connected by an open staircase. The openness of the staircase alone is a simple, yet innovative touch that lends more light and the illusion of more space.
Inside, there are no walls or partitions (this place won’t work for messy folks!). Of course, there’s ample storage space and the house is essentially a proof of concept that you can have a livable, functional space for as little as $200,000.
The home is made for urban living and shows what could be done in a home that’s wedged in between other buildings. Muji’s Vertical House is only 14.5 feet wide and 27 feet deep.
