This super-compact, modern Tokyo home is a great example of how you can utilize a small piece of land in an urban setting.

The Japanese house is sitting on a corner lot, no bigger than 25 x 25 feet. There is easy access to an under-the-building driveway and it has a giant window and some skylights.

The dwelling was designed by Tokyo architect Yasuhiro Yamashita who creates his architecture based on the system of society, the environment and the function.
