This small house in Hiroshima might not attract much attention from passersby were it not for the blue roofing material applied to the walls, making for an eye-catching facade. Taking a closer look, they might notice the apparent lack of windows other than at the entrance, which is positioned deep inside the garage. Looking through the photos though, what really caught our eye was how expansive the living space seemed despite its small size. That sense of expansiveness can easily be attributed to the soaring roof that expands the main living space over twenty feet vertically to the ridge and a further nine feet horizontally over the bathroom. Of course we’ve seen lots of small houses that use high ceilings to make small spaces feel larger, but here the effect is particularly striking.
