Muji aficionados will love the apartments built by the Japanese brand.
Muji is raising the standard of housing with real estate developer Mitsubishi Chiso to create Muji Village, a three-building condominium complex in Chiba Prefecture. Designing houses with the same pared-down neutral aesthetic s an extension to their simple furniture, clothes and home ware.
The concept for Muji Village boils down to three points: Green, Plain, and Community.
- Green means trees, not ecologically sustainable.
- Plain means “white, 100 year concrete” and design that won’t go out of fashion, plus flexibility to remodel as your family configuration changes,
- Community means common spaces like libraries and a couple of gardens.
Muji Village has a very detailed website but its all in Japanese. Please share with us more about the development in comments, if you can read Japanese.
