Located in an old residential home in Shioya Tarumi-ku Kobe, Japan, the small home you see above is a great example of what innovation can do. Designed Endo Shuhei Architects the house stands out from the crowd thanks to its roof, which certainly is something you ain’t going to see every day. Facing the sea, the thin house was forced to use a triangular roof because of its site, with those steep slopes. And I must say they managed to maximize space with a brilliant idea. It’s like doing something out of what seems like nothing, and the Japanese seem to be doing good on that topic. – via
