This vertical house designed by Japanese firm MUJI does minimalism extremely well. Located in Arakawa-ku, Tokyo, the three story abode was conceived with "the city dweller in mind." A wooden staircase connects all three floor levels while the decor is a study in stunning simplicity, much like the rest of MUJI's products.

Design Taxi describes it as "maximizing the available space and its functions." This includes a significant amount of wall storage, from flat screen TVs to broom hooks. The stylish vertical house features crisp white walls inside and an untreated timber look on its exterior. It definitely stands out from the other homes on the street without drawing an overt amount of attention to itself.
