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. Stats for Sculptural Slit Homes Trending: Older & Mild
