This timber-framed house in Osaka looks a bit like the unfinished blueprint for a Mondrian painting. And though it might appear as though it's incomplete, that's how it was intended.
Designed by Japanese architects Suga Atelier, the House of Cedar is made up of a cross-bracing collection of rectangle and square windows, three of which can be opened. The natural theme continues throughout the entire place, with hardwood floors and exposed ceiling beams. You don't enter through the facade, but rather through a door on the side of the house which is hidden under a faceted first floor bulge. Though it looks like a work in progress, it's somehow beautifully complete. [Deezen]
