‘A House Awaiting Death’ by Eastern Design Office is not just a concept or an idea, but is actually a reality-based project for a real client.

The client knows that he will die within 15 years and therefore wanted to design 'A House Awaiting Death' as a form of preparation. The windows of the newly-designed house is strategically plotted in the east where the sun rises, not where it sets, to represent longevity. The home also faces the sea where he will "depart on a ship flashing towards death." Eerily ready for its owner's demise, 'A House Awaiting Death' is definitely a creepy idea.
