Although perhaps not well suited for anyone with young children, this floating floor home certainly creates a striking effect with its unique open plan design.

Located in a residential area in downtown Tokyo, The 'T House' by Hiroyuka Shinozaki Architects measures in at 750 square feet, and has almost no interior walls whatsoever. Built for a young professional couple, the unique design also features a series of floating floor platforms only accessible by a series of ladders. The ladder layout of the home, along with its series of dizzying exposed open floors several stories high, helped inspire the dwelling's unofficial nickname as the 'Ninja House.'

Although perhaps unconventional by Western standards, the unique layout of this home certainly does show an eye for experimentation that can certainly be appreciated for its boldness.
