The conventional design for homes doesn't apply to this Japanese home. This is a small 594 square-foot home in Horinouchi, Japan, built by Mizuishi Architects and is designed to fit a small triangular lot. It looks tiny from the outside but it is hiding quite a lot of space on the inside.
First off, here's its odd shape:
It is tall and narrow.
But check out the inside:
It actually looks more spacious than it seems from the outside.

It has a large living area.
Pretty impressive for 594 square-foot.
It even has an upstairs where it can be converted into a playroom for kids.
