Awesome Architecture: "Shell House" by Kotaro Ide

Deep within the mystic woods of Karuizawa, Japan, you find the “Shell House”, an architectural wonder created by Kotaro Ide. Take a peek inside!

Imagine that, a structure built around its environment rather than on top of it. Amazing work! It is important to note that our homes are not strictly within the square footage of our living quarters but rather, are made up of our entire environments. This structure takes us in that direction. It shows us the beautiful nature in which man-made and natural environments can blend together to form breathtaking habitats; a trend I personally hope to see a lot more of.
