Somedays I get so sick of living in my square home, I just wish I could trade it in for a flattened rectangle. The Plus House will at first have you scratching your head thinking, "how can this be built?" or more importantly, "how can this be lived in?"

On closer inspection, however, you realize how chic and elegant this home really is. The Plus House designed by husband and wife architect Masahrio and Mao Harada, the founders of Mount Fuji Architects studio, looks like it's about to fall off a cliff, but is apparently one of the strongest built structures around. It’s life on the edge. Stats for Japanese Linear Lodges Trending: Older & Average
