Built by D.I.G. Architects, K House is a residential structure that was built on a small lot on the side of a cliff. The architects decided to excavate the ground to make room for the main living space. The structure starts at ground level and descends to create "a habitat generated by the nature form of the cliff," according to the architect's website.

Designers Akinori Yoshimura and Maki Yoshimura built the K House in an open-plan style. No one room has a predetermined purpose (except the kitchen and bathroom). A floating deck can be found on the first floor to give people an area to get away from the earth-protected main floor. The roof of the building is inspired by a sail shape.

This stunning piece of modern architecture is located in Nagoya City, Japan.
