BAKOKO, an international design studio based in Tokyo, Japan has accomplished good transformation to common concrete ‘mansion’ apartment blocks into a contemporary Japanese house. Dubbed as M Mansion, this Japanese household design and style nestled in an eastern Tokyo suburb of Matsudo City, only drawer double dresser 30 minutes by train from the city center. This refurbishment project was completed on a modest spending budget, proving that refurbishing existing properties is nonetheless an inexpensive proposition here.
The modest 37m² (400ft²) unit was divided into two Japanese-style rooms with tatami (reed mat) flooring separated by paper (fusuma) sliding screens and a western kitchen. While getting perfectly quaint and cozy, this type of interior was basically made for a various generation. An open plan arrangement was sought, but with space in quick supply retaining particular conventional Japanese features also made sense.
