One of these houses is not like the others. This house in Tokyo by Sou Fujimoto Architects, known as House NA, stands out with its modern and transparent style. The building is unlike its neighboring houses in its appearance and structure. The interior of the residence has hardly any walls. The house boasts large glass windows for plenty of daylight, but the downside seems to be a lack of privacy. Just about everything indoors is exposed to neighbors and passersby.
On the bright side, there are plenty of positive features in this vertical living space to focus on, including its sleek, contemporary aesthetic with adventurous appeal. The design appears to mimic a tree without outright copying its appearance. There's also something about it that has the architectural feel of a bunk bed. I'm guessing it's all the climbing without actually entering a new room. The three-story edifice features various levels of living space within the segmented structure that's great to just hang out on, as if you were perched atop a tree branch. House NA is the modern interpretation of an adult treehouse for permanent residence.
