Shoji Apartment
by Proctor and Shaw

StaĚŠle Eriksen

A study in materiality, transparency and enclosure, the project is conceived as a prototype for micro living in existing housing stock characterised by a constrained footprint but traditionally generous ceiling heights.

Poky and uncomfortable cellular rooms are replaced by a generous multi functional living space arranged around a translucent sleeping "pod" inspired by Japanese Shoji screens.

By cleverly stacking accommodation in a single height volume, additional floor area is conjured to provide a real sense of luxury and design quality in just 29 square metres.


This project has been longlisted in the residential rebirth project category of Dezeen Awards 2021.
