The House of Cedar is an original architectural design by Japanese architects Suga Atelier. This house is currently on show to the public in Osaka, Japan, which is the central city for the Japanese economy. The showing allows people to see into the home via a transparent facade.

The two-storey building consists of a variety of squares and rectangles, which contribute to the Jenga-like feeling of the structure. Unlike a leaning tower of Jenga blocks, The House of Cedar is sturdy and strong, constructed with cross-bracing wood to support it.

If you're looking for the main entrance, you won't find it at the front of the house. It is located on the side of the structure (another differentiating feature of the building). Stats for Wooden Wonder Houses Trending: Older & Warm
