For himself and his family, Japanese architect Shintaro Fukuhara designed the 'FKH House.' The home features an angled roof and glass front, causing it to resemble a showroom.
Inside, the house is arranged around two double-height atriums, complete with overhead skylights to ensure adequate lighting. The atriums flank the open-space living areas, located on the ground floor, as well as the upper floor walkway that connects the bedrooms.
What the glazed front offers the living area in light, it takes away in terms of privacy, allowing the interior to be easily displayed to those passing by on the street. Still, the trade-off makes for a pretty spectacular, and rather unusual, spectacle of a home that will definitely be noticed.
