Jun Itami-designed house in Komazawa


House & Land  | 2 Bedrooms + 1 Bathroom
Komazawa, Setagaya-ku, Tokyo


Named ‘The House of Wall Torn Open’, this home was designed by renowned Japanese-Korean architect Jun Itami (1937-2011) and competed in 1973. The home is located in a quiet, low-rise suburban area, and an 8 minute walk from Komazawa-daigaku Station on the Denentoshi Line.

The concrete house has a total floor area of 111.31 sqm (1,198 sq.ft) over two floors and a basement, along with a small outdoor parking space. The living area and bathroom is located on the ground floor, with two bedrooms upstairs. The home was restored in February 2018 with new bathroom, kitchen, wallpaper, exterior water-proofing, and lighting. 

Floor sizes:

  • B1F: 41.25 sqm (444 sq.ft)
  • 1F: 39.37 sqm (424 sq.ft)
  • 2F: 39.37 sqm (424 sq.ft)

Itami’s career hit its stride in the 2000s, designing numerous commercial projects across South Korea. Itami had only opened his architectural practice 5 years earlier to the completion of this house, and this is one of his earlier works (his first work was completed in 1971). His career hit its stride in the 2000s, when he designed numerous commercial projects across South Korea, particularly in Jeju.
