Likened to a real life building block home, which is thankfully made out of a material other than colorful plastic, the cantilevered wooden house is unusual on a variety of levels. Yet it has a streamlined modern aesthetic that lands it in the timeless category with ease. Dubbed +node, the cantilevered wooden house is minimalist overall, which makes such a designation quite easy.

Designed by Keisuke Maeda of UID architects, the cantilevered wooden house is located in Japan. As written on Design Milk, "The sloped site meets at a 'node' point where nature and man-made intersect, hence the name of the project." The true beauty behind the cantilevered wooden house is that it works with the surrounding landscape rather than against it.
