“Dogsalon” Residence and a Small Business Space
Sitting at just about 700 square feet, this slim and streamlined space functions as both a residence and a small business. Called “Dogsalon” for exactly what it is– grooming, this Japanese structure is simple, clean and straight to the point. Naoko Horibe Architects designed the space to be as minimalist as possible, with plenty of visual interest.The business portion of the space is located at the points adjacent to the street, allowing for ease of access and allowing the family some additional privacy from the main road. The bathrooms are the connecting point for the live/work junction, while the private areas are ushered toward the back of this unique space.
