Check out this 1200 sqf residence designed by Far East Design Lab, entitled the Shell House. Situated in Hiratsuka City, Japan, the trapezoidal and angular form creates dynamic interior spaces. The residence’s material selection adds a lot of texture and character to the small residence – we especially like the corrugated ceiling treatment that continues to fold down to the wall. Although the house is placed in a dense neighborhood, even with its small size, it is able to make a strong statement. Would you want to live here?
