Japanese firm Yoshichika Tagaki + Associates has completed a two-story house that employs greenhouse strategies—which means, like this recently completed $175K house in France, it's completely wrapped in translucent, polycarbonate paneling, primarily using sunlight to heat its open, barebones interior. Though budget info wasn't provided for this project, it does look as polished as it possibly can for a 570-square-foot home comprising exposed, raw, timber frames, staircase, and lofted "rooms."
