A languid life shared between 5 people in luxury

An exciting lifestyle or a relaxed lifestyle. At first glance these two ways of living might seem opposite to one another, however it is possible for them to coexist depending on time, place and use of space.

However, it is said that for this to happen there must be a wide, spacious area in which to implement such an extravagant plan.

That’s where WHITE HOUSE Sakuradai comes into the picture, a female-only sharehouse 7-minutes walk from Sakuradai station on the Seibu Ikebukuro line. The house and characteristic garden is quite large with 21.43m² of shared living and gallery space, as well as a comfortable dining area to enjoy meals and cooking, the perfect place to divide your time between exciting events and relaxing times depending on the occasion.

It’s a place where you can organise events or home parties, exhibit works or hold workshops, to let your hair down a little more and really relax. It is the very epitome of luxury.

Without further ado, let’s have a look inside the house!!

Managing WHITE HOUSE Sakuradai is Team Sukima Japan. They create houses by developing thoughts and ideas that came about through their own experiences living in sharehouses, such as what would make a better house or what would make things even more fun, and after seeing this house’s spacious lounge and its private rooms, we’re sold on it.

Even though you might want to live in a relaxed, comfortable place, you still want a little bit of excitement and extraordinary experience that you don’t get a taste of in everyday life. You want to be able to divide your time between excitement and relaxation like an ON/OFF switch. If this sounds like you, then this house is your ideal place. 

The company has opened another house in Asagaya, with a ‘secret hideout’ concept, simultaneously with this one. It is filled with figurines of popular manga characters and just being there makes your heart skip a beat and takes you back to your childhood. Tenants can even enjoy movies on a 100 inch screen in the co-working area. If you are interested please check out this link→http://tokyosharehouse.com/jpn/house/detail/773/

Putting yourself in such a big environment is quite strange as it causes changes to your mental state, which is a relatively positive thing. Today’s house, WHITE HOUSE Sakuradai, with its characteristic large garden and living space, allows its residents to relax and find peace of mind.
