How would you describe Meguro Residence and Meguro Penthouse in a nutshell?
We designed and built Meguro House in 2009 as our own residence. Conveniently located in a quiet neighborhood in central Tokyo, the house provides a serene retreat in an urban setting with neutral colors and furnishings that complement the contemporary design. It has been immaculately maintained and we are pleased to offer it to travelers visiting Tokyo.
What was your inspiration to create Meguro House?
Our inspiration came conceptually from traditional Japanese shop house which has simplicity in design and local craftsmanship. Our goal was to create a comfortable modern living environment by combining western lifestyle with Japanese elements. It was designed to harmonize with its context.
How would you describe the interior design and the atmosphere at Meguro Residence & Penthouse?
The interior of the house is spacious in Japanese standard. It expresses simplicity while soft texture and neutral tone throughout the house generate the comfort of living and warm atmosphere. An exposed concrete wall was used in part of the interior with attention paid to the texture to soften the typical stiffness of concrete. Large windows throughout the house bring in abundant natural light and give a sense of openness.
Is Meguro Residence best suited for couples, families, groups? What’s your policy on kids?
Meguro Residence accommodates 7 guests. It is suitable for couples, families and groups. The house provides comfort and privacy as it is a single-family home (rather than units in an apartment building as with typical rentals in Tokyo). We welcome kids.
