Sometimes when people plan to renovate their new house they come up with crazy ideas which implementation might seem to be almost impossible. A family of three based in Osaka, Japan, asked for a house where they could be near each other all the time no matter where they were. It sounds impossible, but the light tamers and space masters from a Japanese construction company did exactly what their clients wanted. And the house turned out to be so unusual that it's challenged all stereotypes about homes!

The clients wanted to be close to each other no matter where each of them was. They didn't want separate rooms so that they could feel close to each other. And to perplex the architects further, the family said they did not really need the storage space.

According to the creators of the house, the owners quickly got used to it:

"Our clients lived nearby and gradually moved into the house. Since they finally settled in, things, architecture, and people have become an ensemble."

As the saying goes, don't judge a book by its cover. Even the most inconspicuous building can hide a real masterpiece of architectural thought!
