Japanese architect Sou Fujimoto has come up with a unique design for a house in Tokyo, Japan. Made up almost completely of transparent glass, the house is made up of 21 ‘platforms’, each of which can serve as a working, resting, sleeping or living space. Based around the concept of a ‘tree’, each platform is linked to each other by movable or fixed stairs and ladders, making it seem like an enormous loft.

“The intriguing point of a tree is that these places are not hermetically isolated but are connected to one another in its unique relativity. To hear one’s voice from across and above, hopping over to another branch, a discussion taking place across branches by members from separate branches. These are some of the moments of richness encountered through such spatially dense living,” says Sou Fujimoto.
