This house by Japanese practice, geneto, was designed to disregard the everyday layouts of mass-produced residential homes and create a thoughtful relationship between the inside and out of highly developed residential areas.
The most remarkable feature of this home is that the furniture is built into the building itself. Geneto thought out the best use of space within each room and designed to utilize it to it's full potential.
Now I find this takes a bit of the fun out of choosing your own furniture etc, but if this were the way with budget accommodation or social housing - cutting out the price of furniture would definitely be a benefit.
Personally it's the minimalist look of this design that I love and the irregular, yet spacious layouts - not to mention the cute 'mouse hole' for the pets!
