uchida shanghai has completed a very small residential area of 47 square meters in shanghai, china. the concept was to acquire the spatial richness as well as secure the maximum storage space for a family to live.

most of the furniture was custom-made to make the space feel free and sophisticated. the main materials were primitive — bamboo, laminated wood and iron — while their combination makes you feel the atmosphere of the modern shanghai city.
the small space has two levels — the first floor hosts communal areas, while the bedroom and a tatami room are located upstairs. although uchida shanghai is a china-based studio, its design focuses on traditional japanese approach, so the use of tatami is a typical move in the architects’ work.
