    This place makes me want to go all Tyler Durden on my apartment.

      What they didn't tell us, is that it transforms into a giant robot or a space shuttle.

    Everything is a little too visable for me, I like my privacy

      they need some curtains.

      Then again, it's in the middle of the woods and seems to be very secluded, so unless you're afraid of the forest wildlife watching you, I think you've got your privacy.

      and they'd probably have to remove the wall of the basement apartment your living in to get you out…so why move.

    That's Japan for you. Today you'll see something and be like ''OMG awesumm!!'', tomorrow you'll be like ''Oh God why??''

    #16 Japanese cottage they said. Inventive shell they said…. Just look like two squished sushi rolls to me!

    Continuous curvature always make an instant modernistic style. This reminds me of some of Zaha Hadid's work.
    And a ho-ho.

      definitely some solid architecture, this dude is just jealous because he doesn't understand how awesome architecture can be. KC&CO fellow architecture fan

    I'm curious to know if the rain water will run all the way to the bottom of the house and erode the very ground it sits on? Seems like poor planning but what do I know.

  • freddy boy

    It is lovely but the photos would be so much more personal with a few knick-knacks strewn about and paintings on the wall. Maybe a nice Japanese model in her undies…hmmm.

    #11 The neighbors get one hell of a view into your life, at least.

  • Owen

    • DemonIAm

      not a half-pipe, there are drains at the base. you'd die.

  • Thud

    Chock full of 70's goodness!

  • Nick

    I look at this and all I can think is “First time it rains, you’re going to be ass-deep in the run-off”…

  • that_ALBANIAN_guy

    Minimal maintenance my ass. It'll take ages to powerwash that deck.

      Damn you sure do take alot of the chives stuff eh?

  • andysniper

    as great as these style houses are, they'd be a bitch to masturbate in.

  • misschris

    I'm gonna be honest, I don't really know what they mean by the house is supposed to "coexist w/ the nature around it." Other than that, I think it's pretty neat. Very modern.

  • Cajunvudoo

    Looks like a horrible place to get stuck at for the zombie apocalypse.

  • cecep

    Creepy like a tomb.

  • tawlker

    Looks primed and ready for a spat of ultra-violence, or perhaps, a bit of the old in-out.

  • jobxus

    But how will it hold up against a zombie attack?

  • clark

    I will take 3. One Washington looking down on ocean, two in Utah looking up to the ski slopes, three on hills near Vegas looking down on the lights.

    When the hell did Tony Hawk move to Japan?

  • Pedant

    How do you hang pictures on the wall here…?
