The GEH House is located in Tokyo, and the structure takes on an extremely angular roof. Most slope slowly from the sides and meet in the middle, but the International Royal Architecture decided to do designs a little differently.
The roof slopes upwards from one side of the house, but the opposite section stays completely straight. This results in the point coming together on one side of the abode instead of merging in the middle. While the difference sounds subtle in writing, in reality it makes quite the statement. Inside the living and sleeping areas are kept separate. This allows for one of the levels to remain completely devoted to a communal space, so that the owners can socialize together after coming home from work.
