The Big Squeeze
Notice anything unusual about this rather cool modern-looking house?
I certainly didn’t, until I took a look at it from the opposite side:
Phenomenally thin and angled into an almost unbelievably narrow wedge, it’s a typical example of the way Japanese architects manage to squeeze every last drop of use out of limited spaces. See it on Google maps.
In other countries one wouldn’t even begin to consider building on such blocks of land, but here a narrow strip of land is simply a reason to get really creative.
