Taking minimalism to its apex, Japanese architect Fumihito Hisanari created this plain white box called the Parallel house. This single-family residence in the Kagawa prefecture of Japan is striking in its simplicity.
Illumination from skylights and an airy interior make what would seem like a claustrophobic home into one that is surprisingly spacious. The Parallel house is in fact a two-story building. The wooden frame of the Parallel house allows for 1,268 square feet of floor space--far roomier than it appears.
