The Kyoto Town House is not your average town house; to the normal eye, this house just has crazy walls that go zig-zag and everywhere. What sets it apart is the polyhedral form of partition walls, which are based on logical concepts that perform multiple functions. Now you know. 

Designed by Kantero Takeguchi and Asako Yamamoto, the walls reflect natural light, and stimulate ‘perception’ and ‘behaviour.’ As mathematically charming the Kyoto Town House may be, for everyone else it’s sure dizzyingly fun to look at. Stats for Ambiguous Homes Trending: Older & Buzzing
