Homes by MUJI

Apparently MUJI has been designing houses in Japan since 2004. MUJI currently offers three models of homes: the “Ki no Ie (Wood House)”, the “Mado no Ie (Window House)”, and the “Tate no Ie (Vertical House).” In September 2019, they added the forth product the Yō no Ie (Sun House). And they’re all amazing.

Unlike Muji’s previous home designs, the Yō no Ie House has a single floor that stretches into an open 800-square-foot, one-bedroom layout. A trio of full-height doors open onto a 200-square-foot deck, where a sunken area can be used for a cozy conversation pit or garden.

As expected, everything about the Yō no Ie House is muted. Pale wood floors and white walls create a soothing atmosphere. It’s just the type of house that would be perfect for new, discerning home owners on a budget. Unfortunately, the Yō no Ie House is only available in Japan for now, selling for $160,000. Still eager to live the Muji life? There’s always the Muji hotel.
