While living in a concrete home doesn’t sound too inviting, Japanese architecture firm Eastern Design Office somehow manages to pull it off with their slit home.

The slit home design is a concrete home with 60 ‘slits’ in the concrete, which become small, building height windows. The result is a surprisingly sunny interior to the home and a protected outside. While grey concrete may not be much to look at usually, Eastern Design Office seems to know how to make it look good.
