When is a tree not a tree? When it´s a house. That may sound a little mysterious, but when you hear that this weird property is inspired by living in a tree, it sort of makes sense.
This is an amazing looking house that is not for the shy! Built by Sou Fujimoto architects in Tokyo in glass with a white steel frame, the complex structure of this house means that even the simplest of materials do not have to look boring. Plus this unique design means that whole building is flooded with light.
Just in case you were wondering, the bathroom is in the basement (out of sight) and there are thick white curtains at strategic points for moments when you need a little privacy.
