Emily Hutchinson has been writing about home design for several years. She is an expert on shared living, having inhabited many a shared home from Sydney to New York. She currently lives in a share home in Melbourne.
Art curator Hiroshi and food designer Haruna Ito live with their baby Yuri and friend Noriko in a magical share house near Shinjuku, where one bedroom has been turned into an art installation for visitors to stay in. In our special two-part 'shared living' series, Emily Hutchinson looks around the world for some of the most inventive ways of living closer together. This story is one of many collected in Emily's new book Shared Living: Interior Design for Rented and Shared Spaces.
