At first glance, the Idokoro House might seem like a penitentiary due to its stark appearance and nearly windowless facade. For those who don't delve in further, it might remain one in their minds forever. But for those who do, they will discover a bright and spacious home that thrives on minimalism.

Designed by mA-Style Architects, the Idokoro House is located in Shizouka, Japan. Despite the presence of what appears to be only one window, the interior is full of natural light. This is due in large part to the division between the Idokoro House. With full-glass walls, the light from the roofless section streams right through.

Inside, the Idokoro house is also full of warmth thanks to the abundance of wood materials.
