Not only is the footprint of this house in Kashiwa, Japan quite small, clocking in at just 70 square meters (or about 750 square feet), the Yamazaki Kentaro-designed "Unfinished House", as it's known, is also remarkably free of interior walls inside. Comprising four plywood-walled wings organized around a central living space, the two-story, corrugated-metal-clad dwelling is both a home and a thought experiment. The idea is to empower the clients to fashion their interior spaces in whichever way they see fit, by letting their possessions, rather than a whiz-bang design, take center stage. And, perhaps, to provide helicopter parents with omniscience-level sightlines to their kids at all times.
