Located in Osaka, Japan, the Kohki Hiranuma Time and Space House takes modern to a whole other level. Inserted into its site two meters below street level, this house ensures extreme privacy in every element of its design.

DesignBoom.com describes the house as "constructed out of reinforced concrete, the house is closed off from the street and gains the majority of its natural daylight through a generous courtyard space." The ceiling height of the living spaces are extremely high, creating a larger sense of space.

The last architectural wonder from Japanese design firm Kohki Hiranuma was the wood-wrapped 'House for Everyone,' but this science-defying abode is sure to cause just as big a stir in the architecture and design world with its emphasis on timelessness and flexibility.
