I was wondering if this kind of appatments/house exist in america and europe, or it's japan only. You know satou from welcome to NHK lives in this kind of house too. could you please give examples (links)?


Looks like a cheap motel.


Looks like a motel or a ghetto housing project


We don't really do the staircase on the outside like this. We put all the staircases inside in the US. Seems much more efficient to have it on the outside like this.


I saw the same type of buildings at Miami project housings almost looking the same as well


keep in mind this is a appartment and not a motel, do this kind of building exist outside of japan?

On second thought, we did have a couple apartment buildings like this in the past. Just very, very few of them and they might all be gone or converted at this point. Now, the only other kind of residence like this besides motels are a couple buildings at a local campus.

already been said but yeah that is how generic motels look in america

japan has a tendency to not give a shit about the exterior and so you can see tons of utilities, wire conduits, vents, and so on in that image lainly visible on the front. in america that stuff tends to be hidden to the backside

here's a generic example of somethign from texas. notice the rooms alternate so that the doors are together, this is for the cleaning ladies, they dont have to move the cart as much. they move it once and they can service two rooms

kind of related to this type of architecture is the edo period 'nagaya' or row house. there are multistory examples similar to these, but they don't have that walkway, traditionally it would have a roof there to protect the first floor structure. you access the second story from the inside


I like the design but yeah they don't exist in north America.

Bachelor apartments. Some on the coast of Miami. Had one in GTA:VC, parked my Faggio pizza-orienting motorbike there.

Pic on the related is one of a wizard, other is one i invented.

Motels, they have a similar layout to Japanese Single's apartments.. You can rent for the whole month, but they still want to come in and vaccuum up the wizards's SD cards EVERY DAY!! And we can't have any wizcats or even wizfurniture! it's CRAZY

Hidamari sketch shows some apartments of this genre to be.. leaky. water, all of the young succubi's heads. But they pay less! They need a real wiz in there to fix her up good (and repair the apartment too!!!)


a man can comfortably live in a 12ft by 12ft bedroom with a kitchen and bathroom attached. Most houses are terribly inefficient when it comes to the practical use of space

They're only occupied by ghetto trash in the states, not that I don't like apartments and duplexes like that.


I really like duplexes, they're comfy but rare

6 tatami flat like satou's room


does someone know the name given to houses like this >>40343 (pic related) I saw some on google street in japan, they give them a name but I forgot, do you know perhaps?


hum, did you lost your way? I don't understand the link between your comment and this thread, can you explain to me please?

They seem to be just called 「2階建てアパート」 and their proliferation was driven by avoiding the additional regulations for 3 story housing


thank you very much! I wish we were friends and traveling both in japan!
