Located in Tokyo, Japan, this house is like none other. It’s not because of its architecture or interior décor although they are beautiful as well. It’s about the shape of the house and its location. The residence was designed and built by SNARK + OUVI. It sits on an area of 10,313 square meters and it was built in 2012.

Situated in Honiyo-shi, the residence is an hour and a half by car from Tokyo. This is not usually a problem but in this case there is no public transportation available so all the residents in the area have to use their personal cars. This means that they all need a garage.
