I just like the direct relation between the street side (vertical) and the train side (horizontal). Nice interior ideas.
A tall and narrow entrance slopes down to a low and wide living space at this triangular house in Japan by Katsutoshi Sasaki + Associates. Located in Toyota in Aichi Prefecture, the black wooden house is arranged between two frames at either end, one vertical and the other horizontal. The frames create a sloping roof and walls between them as the two-storey entrance diminishes to a single storey at the rear.

Wow. Ça m’impressionne à chaque fois: les architectes japonais sont résolument hyper créatifs et leurs clients sont franchement impressionnants. Ils repoussent toujours plus loin leurs limites pour explorer de nouvelles façons de vivre… Chapeau !

A total plywood house. Just imagine the wood smell inside. : )
The new facade is cladded in plywood, coated in black pine tar just like the traditional way of preserving wooden boats. The roof is coated in simple tar paper and has thin plywood eaves with integrated aluminum gutters, coated in black. The interior is all in natural pine and where plywood is used for both cladding and construction.

A Japanese white minimalistic house in Portugal, by Manuel Aires Mateus. Some interesting features, some other very questionable (the court ‘holes’ flat on the ground…). I like the images of the master bedroom (so peaceful) and of the pot garden (layers).
