This pyramidal house designed by the architect Makoto Tanijiri is quite unusual and non conventional, that’s not something you see everyday! At first, you could think that it’s a house from the future but on the contrary, it’s a house inspired by the earliest houses in Japan architecture.

Apart from its shape, the house is sunk a meter into the ground and the soil from excavations was used to make a kind of barrier all around the house. In fact, the clients wanted something open with natural light but they also wanted to keep their privacy.

The sunken floor is for the living, kitchen and dining areas, the first floor is for the bedroom and bathroom and there is also a terrace. The second floor is the children's bedroom.
I find the architecture interesting but really weird at the same time, so I don’t know if I could live in such house! And what about you? Could you see yourself living in it?

I usually like unique houses like this but it seemed to be lacking in any good looks.

Cool!

maybe it is based on the idea of the Tateana-shiki-jukyo in ancient Japan.
