Why live in a glorified box, when your home could take the long and meandering form of the O House by Hideyuki Nakayama? Located in Kyoto, Japan, this unique property solves the challenge of a long lot with a slim and sinuous floorplan.

Featuring two storeys' height at the front of the dwelling, the O House by Hideyuki Nakayama Architects produces the effect of two lengthy stacked corridors that lead from a panoramic view of the neighborhood, to a quiet inner lair for living. Complete with wrapping spiral staircases, an enchanting garden and an enormous curtain that must be about 10m tall, this suburban abode provides the ultimate paradozical experience.
