The Cosmic House by UID is located in Japan, and it aims to challenge the traditional space of an abode.

Most houses have clear separations between the indoor and outdoor areas, but UID tries to show how this distinction does not always have to occur. The company has made the building blend with the external environment in a way that most houses do not. The main color palette used for the design is white, which helps with this blending motif. For shape, much of the building consists of rectangular sections that overlap in a distinct way. This overlapping helps with the "blurred boundary condition between indoor and outdoor," as put by DesignBoom. While it's not likely that every house will take on this new look over the next decade, it helps to have a firm that challenges conventional methods.
