Unique Circular Indoor Walls of Timber, Indoor Trees, and Glass Walls on Hillside by UID Architects

Okayama, Japan’s Prefecture holds this beautiful residence designed by Keisuke Madea, UID Architects. This stunning house is properly named ‘Pit House’ as it looks like it was excavated with six pit shaped spaces that create circular living rooms and terraces in the garden. 138 square-meters, on the hillside with a full 360-degree view of the magnificent surroundings. Timber curving walls connect levels to a concrete cylinder at the center of the property. Living rooms are adorned with rectangular glass walls. Interior is absolutely lovely and shines with pure natural warmth as multiple indoor trees and grey pebbles decorate the inside of the home as well as the outside as seen directly through the wide windows. Such creative design blurs the line between indoors and outdoors making this home unique in so many ways.
