Tokyo-based firm Atelier Tekuto designed this rugged Brutalist home on a tiny plot that measures just 66 square meters (about 710 square feet). To maximize sunlight inside the house and views out, the design team beveled several of the board-formed concrete house's edges, creating uniquely shaped windows. The three-story house's stark interiors may not be to everyone's taste, but they have a certain appeal (plus, the concrete is 100 percent recyclable!) Take a look!
