Amazing facts-Narrowest House in Japan

Situated in Tokyo, Japan, on a small, triangular plot of land, architect Kota Mizuishi has created a beautiful new house for a family of three. House in Horinouchi is top heavy and may look a little bizarre but it's a great example of working within spatial limitations. While seemingly cramped, the Horuinouchi House is a beautifully minimal design.

The top half's interior includes the living room, a kitchen/dining room, a small spare room and a loft that serves as the child's room.

The bottom floor of the house holds the master bedroom and bath. This cozy house costs 150,000,000 yen to build which comes out to roughly $198K.
