A tatami room in a laneway house is an excellent way to save space and add a touch of traditional Japanese culture to the home. The Japanese traditionally roll up their bed each day to create more space in the home, and in this design, the room serves multiple purposes. During the day, it can be used as a yoga space or gym, thanks to the strength and durability of the tatami mats. And when it's time to entertain guests, the room can be transformed into a comfortable and inviting space for enjoying tea and conversation on floor pillows. By night, the residents can simply roll out a shikifuton and snuggle up under their kakefuton for a long, restful sleep.

This unique design feature not only saves space and serves multiple purposes, but it also offers a touch of traditional Japanese culture that is sure to impress. At Longpre Architecture, we are always seeking out new and creative ways to make the most of the space in our clients' homes.
