Japan has always been ahead of the game when it comes to inventions that we never knew we needed and this time, they’ve created the dream home for all artsy folks – an apartment building with an in-house movie theatre, lounge area, work studio, and photography studio!

Known as FILMS Wako, it’s basically a home, office, and entertainment centre all in one, and a fantasy brought to life for all cinephiles. Providing us with ultimate convenience and quality facilities, the building has a handful of common areas for residents and their friends to gather at, such as the sleek lobby lounge that’s equipped with a television, pool table, and plenty of plush seats.

The cosy yet luxurious theatre room is hidden behind an equally grand-looking door, and fits a total of about 20 people comfortably. Boasting cinema-quality specs like a 4K display projector on a 150-inch large screen, the best part about it is that you can easily hook up your own electronic device to the projector to display your own clips on the screen!

Open for rent since late October this year, the apartment building features a total of 123 studio apartment units, and each starts from 57,000 yen a month (approximately SGD$691.33). Since it’s conveniently located just a 20-minute train ride away from the ever-bustling Shinjuku, I’ll say that this is a fair price to pay for such a home of your dreams!

Choy’s guilty pleasures include reading dog encyclopedias for leisure, prancing to songs by Kollectivit and The Lonely Island when she’s home alone, and eating the skin off her chicken nuggets before biting into the meat. Mmm...
