This Kooky Japanese Home Had a Lot of Fun With Windows

Over in Shiga, Japan, this pile of monochrome boxes is actually a delightfully trippy home with windows meticulously placed to frame the house's views. Designed by Japanese architect Kouichi Kimura, the Scape House S prioritizes "versatile spaces" with "light and scenery," using precisely placed windows of all sizes to create vistas and lighting conditions that are just so. Many of the openings, which highlight the hilltop home's scenic vantage point, are framed by built-in furniture in the form of seating areas, shelving, and tables. The result is a pleasant bunch of light-filled nooks and an internal flow that feels just a tad MC Escher-esque.
