Tokyo-based Tekuto Architecture is crazy about angles, as can be seen in a previously featured piece on the firm (link below). In this angular home, there appear to be no right angles—everything, and I mean everything, is at an angle.

The overall effect is stunning, showing that Tekuto Architecture really knows how to handle unusual shapes and figures. The Dornob blog went so far as to compare the design to Frank Gehry and Frank Lloyd Wright.

Implications - The oddly shaped building is striking to the eye, but certainly does not make for a unified picture of the conventional home. Giving off the appearance of two houses glued together, the home is far from normal, yet intriguing to the modern perspective owner.
