The Cube House
The Cube House by Tom and Yumiko of Virant Deign is only 1000 square feet but it doesn't feel like it! There budget was only $150,000! Even though this space is small, it feels open and spacious. I would happily live in 1000 square feet if my house looked like this. This is the only house that's not in Japan. It's located south of Charlottesville, Virginia.

I probably wouldn't live in this house, but it's really cool anyway. All the walls in this house are made of glass and is comprised of 21 individual floor plates. The architects were trying to mimic life in a tree house! I would love to walk through this house. I wonder if it's difficult to distinguish where one floor ends and the other begins...

Montblanc House was designed by Okazaki-based Studio Velocity. The unique feature of this house are the pockets of open space throughout the house. I can't stand how pretty the roof terrace is! See more of this house at Design Boom.
