The Osaka house by Ido Kenji Architectural Studio is an all-white structure that is exemplary in its advantageous use of a small space.

Boasting three stories, the house is a revamp of the resident's previous home in the same site that lacked natural lighting due to its restricted spacing. With an inventive approach, the architects took full advantage of natural light by "rotating the second floor by 14 degrees, angling a pair of rooms towards a large corner window" according to Dezeen.

This rotation makes not only for a well-lit environment, but also for a fantastically angular look to the interior. Going with this aesthetic, box-like steps were added that resemble hollow squares that appear to be floating. With such inventive design and exemplary use of space, the Osaka house by Ido Kenji Architectural Studio is a design marvel.
