ARTechnic's Stunning Shell House: Exterior And Interior




Japanese architecture firm ARTechnic has designed and completed this unusual- but beautiful and minimalist- concrete ovoid home in Karuizawa, Japan. Built in two sections, around a fir tree, it is nestled in a forest and is as amazing inside as it is on the outside.

And now, the interior, complete with curved banquets, wood built-ins and round skylights:

Kind of wombish (cozy vs. claustrophobic), but loved the way they've structured the house around the tree.

C'mon people, it's only a dollar.
