Looking at this 'Black Slit' House design from the Japanese architectural firm 'THREE.BALL.CASCADE' brings the word "bachelor pad" immediately to mind. With the contemporary lines and favoring of stark black exterior and interior features, the Black Slit House appears to be the perfect man cave.

Standing solid at 250 square meters, the Black Slit house fits perfectly into an industrial neighbourhood in Japan. The two stories of this building allow for multiple residences to reside peacefully should they choose, or one very wealthy bachelor.

Implications - The use of blackened color schemes continues to be one of the most effective ways for products to instantly exude a classic, timeless aura from the perspective of many consumers. Companies who are especially hoping to appeal to a predominantly male demographic should further recognize the vast benefits of black product packaging and product designs.
