This pentagon window house in Jigozen, Japan was built by Suppose Design to house a family of three in this seaside city. The exterior and interior flow seamlessly in a design that had to be aware of the heavy wind, rain and typhoons that occurs yearly in the area.

The shape of the pentagon window house seems almost unremarkable-as it is a just an ordinary, solid rectangle while the windows are in the traditional shape of a two dimensional house. This whimsical, yet simplistic play on shapes helps give the interior of the house an almost middle eastern feel.
