S-House by Yuusuke Karasawa Architects located in Chichibu, Japan, because, of course. At least it seems to be on a fairly quiet street. The floors branch out again to continue above, staggering against the exterior eaves to compose a uniquely intricate elevation. This complicated structural logic is applied not just in the elevation but throughout the interior space as well, where the floors themselves entwine diagonally, with a void that looks out to the opposing space created at the center of this complicated floor. Book of the day is up as well, Lucio Fontana “King of Spatialists” Whether you love art or just want to look smart and cultured, either way, I got you covered, get at the link in bio for more details. This is one of the most insane houses, I can’t believe someone really lives in this space and environment. It def seems like an acquired lifestyle, or at least I would imagine so. The lack of privacy is overwhelming. 



The project is a small house built in a residential area near Omiya station in Saitama. Two 50m2 floor crossover over in two levels on a site that measures around 100 m2. Each level is quartered, two opposing floors of which are elevated. The eaves surrounded at the middle of the ceiling height of the other two floors intertwine with the elevated floors, creating a space characterized by a complex network. The elevated floors of the two levels continue to a diagonal wall, as well as to the floors above.




Although this opposing space seen from the void appears to continue visually, one can only arrive at it by traveling through the complicated levels and taking a drastic detour after moving to a different floor. While visually adjacent, the flow is one that requires a long traveling distance. The commonly understood three-dimensional depth and the sense of distance are being disturbed, creating architectural spaces where various distances become complicated, much like what is happening in infospheres like the internet. This architecture realizes such network–type spaces, where various distances become increasingly complex, as a “network of complex levels” in which multiple levels are networked and layered over one another.
