Pet Architecture

Pet Architecture is a term that describes small functional buildings built on left over space. These unique buildings have unusual footprints, often triangular or trapezoid. They are not glamorous but freestanding and casual or shabby.

Architect Yoshiharu Tsukamoto of Atelier Bow-Wow have listed and illustrated all the Pet Buildings in Tokyo in their book, Pet Architecture Guide book.

An example is a real estate office in a gap, 4ft wide and 33 ft

Another is a triangular shaped Stamp Making shop using 117 sqft in the negative space between 2 other buildings.

Other Examples of Pet Architecture in the left over spaces.

The Pet Architecture Guide Book catalogs and illustrates in detail, all unique buildings arsing from  gap spaces in Tokyo.
