Giant x Rad Labs Stac

Solving the 'missing middle housing' dilemma with shipping containers in Toronto, Canada

Architect Madoka Aihara makes the most out of a narrow alley with their 1.8 house design, built in 2015, the house is 1.8 meters wide inside (or 5 ft 9 inches!) inside. In Tokyo, the majority of the city has grown up and out on former rice paddies, land that has been held in families for generations and sliced into ever-thinner parcels – the minimum lot width is now 2 meters (or 6.2 feet). With one of the highest densities of any major city in the world (12k people/square mile vs. LA’s 8k or San Diego’s 4k), every space is valued – no plot of land, not even the smallest sliver is wasted.
