Designed as an English version of a Japanese tea house, Terunobu Fujimori's Beetle House appears as though it were a part of a movie set.

A Japanese tea house has a traditionally simple layout, made to give the mind a break from the busy city. Terunobu Fujimori's Beetle House generates a similar effect. Perfect for a mini-retreat, this English tea house has an interesting design that could attract plenty of visitors.

Implications - It's hard not to look at a house like this and imagine what it would be like to spend a summer living in it. The mental getaway one could experience in it is alluring.
