Did you know that a steadily increasing number of people are living life at their own pace by personally renovating a place that takes their fancy from among the 7 million old, unoccupied houses in Japan?

Three designers (Jasper MorrisonKonstantin Grcic and Naoto Fukasawa), working on the international stage, come together to produce a small prefab home that reflects this lifestyle, guided by the theme of "a rich life through minimalism".

Muji Huts just debuted at Design Touch 2015, a Tokyo Design Week event located in the city's Midtown Garden.

The tiny houses offer different takes on a peaceful escape from the urban hustle and bustle. 

The architects have chosen different materials (cork, aluminum, wood), size, and livability, but they definitely have the stylishly austere "Muji look" down.
