This single-family residence in Setagaya-ku, Tokyo looks like a little futuristic oasis. The Tsubomi house by Flathouse was designed by architect Yoshinori Sakano. From the outside, there doesn't seem to be many windows.

The small two-story, wood frame home is quite spacious and luminous inside. The birchwood interior allows the home to make the most of the natural light that streams into the open concept space.

Implications - After returning home from a busy day, many workers want to enter a space that sets them apart from the millions of other employees around the globe. A house that boasts originality is one way to make a consumer feel special after a long day. Companies should consider how their designs make their customer feel in the context of everyday life.
