    Default Nest House in Onomichi-city, Hiroshima, Japan

    Japanese studio UID Architects have completed this timber house at the foot of a mountain in Japan that has wide openings in the walls and roof, as well as between the ground and first floors.





    The entrance to Nest is located on the ground floor and visitors pass through a planted garden that can grow up through the full height of the house.

    So there's nothing to stop you falling down that central hole. Brilliant! Ideal for kiddies. Crappy old plywood is such an attractive building material.

    It looks like a storage unit.

    Let me get this straight:

    They have banisters on the stairs to keep you from falling, but nothing to stop you from pitching into the hole in the floor?

    Does it just rain into the house?

    This looks like a house after a tornado or other natural disaster. Tree in the middle of it, plywood covering holes, etc. Ugly.

    Don't know why, but looking at the pictures makes me nauseous.

    It looks like some sort of storage building, not a real house.

    That is what I was thinking. You just look at the pics and wonder when they will finish it.

    I feel like I'm going to get a splinter in my hand just by looking at these pictures.

    I like the nest, but it would work better as a courtyard/entrance rather than inside the house.

    Obviously, it's not a child-friendly or clumsy-person-friendly house either. I've actually fell up a flight of stairs, so I can imagine myself falling in that hole
