This Japanese House by Fuse-Atelier Looks Like a Gallery

This fascinating residence in Abiko, Japan, which has come to be known as the house in Abiko, presents a phenomenal use of concrete that makes the most out of a small plot with foundational issues.

The location of the property is at the bottom of two plateaus, so the upper structure is cantilevered. While the inside is interesting, the photos of the outside of the home offer perspective into how unique the design is in comparison to its suburban surroundings, and also helps to gauge the size, which is large.

The house was designed for a couple in their thirties who wanted a gallery-like space made of concrete where their "pleasure of designed furniture" could stand out, according to Arch Daily.
